How was everyones Christmas and New years break? Good I hope. Only two days left before our second big game jam! Are you ready yet? I hope so! Here are some more details...

 

What will I need?

Just a laptop or computer and something to write on... We got you covered for everything else :-)

 

How long is it?

It will be the entire weekend, so starts at 12pm Saturday and ends around 8pm Sunday.

 

Who should come?

C++ programmers, 2D artists, musicians, and designers. We actually have a ton of C++ programmers, we need more designers/producers, artists and music guys! So come join in on the fun!!

 

Will the actual cubes be there to play with?

Although recommend to use simulator for quick testing we are working on getting actual cubes there for you to test on.

 

What's the entry fee?

10 bucks. You can pay at the door or when rsvp'ing for the meetup, it's going to the Hacker Lab space

 

Can I get started now?

Yes you can! Start by going to https://developers.sifteo.com/docs/SifteoSDK/0.9.8/index.html and download the simulator and look through the docs, I highly recommend you be prepared for this! Trying to learn it all as you go during the jam is NOT recommend. Non-technical people id say still get the simulator going and just play around with the examples.

 

Will there be prizes?

Meh, sorta? This is not a competition, may do a raffle at the end though and give out some shirts possibly :-) We are all winners! So lets just make some games and have fun.

 

 

That's all folks! I'll be sending out one more reminder email this Friday, if you have any more questions let me know!
