MakeGamesMiami Summer Game Jam

It's that time of the year for the MakeGamesMiami Summer Game Jam. What is a game jam? It's an opportunity to create game prototypes over a full weekend with the South Florida Game Developer community. Meet artists, programmers, animators, designers and more to build a game around a central theme just for the fun of it and to build your own skills or cultivate some creative ideas. This isn't limited to video games either, you can make tabletop games, card games, board games, visual novels, etc. anything you want to. The following Prize will be awarded to the top 3 games created at the jam and voted on by the community: The winners will be given the opportunity to showcase their work at GACUbash 2019 on our exhibition floor.
