For those of you who haven't yet signed up for the Global Game Jam - GO FOR IT!

This is the single biggest game jam of them all, and it only happens once a year.

Keita Takahashi, creator of Katamari Damacy and Noby Noby Boy, will provide a video keynote for the event via YouTube. The keynote will be released on Friday, January 28, 2011 at 5pm local time in Auckland, New Zealand. This guy is absolutely crazy - I'll bet his speech is insanely funny. Be sure to check out youtube around then.

Check out this twitter hashtag for tons of tweets over the weekend:
#ggj11

And this one will most likely go ballistic with images:
#screenshotsaturday

These are the achievements you can go for this year:

I can't be there in the evenings so I may only drop by on Saturday afternoon. (Newborn babies - nobody told me they would take up free time! =) Even if I am unable to attend in person, I'll be jamming at home and will be there in spirit - don't worry I will pay the $20 just to help with your expenses either way cuz I'm nice like that.

Have an awesome jam, everyone!

P.S. Links Aplenty: (irc chatroom, video streams, achievements, faqs etc)
