Details

Seattle Indies is holding it's very own, first ever annual game jam, where the theme is selected by YOU!

The Seattle Indies Game Jam is a 48 hour event generously hosted by the Living Computer Museum (http://www.livingcomputers.org/) where the theme is decided by our wonderful community! Participants will be tasked with creating a game between 6:30pm on Friday to 6:30pm on Sunday, in whatever format they choose, while using the selected theme as guidance. Form a team with others, or work solo - you decide! The Seattle Indies Game Jam is not a competition, but rather a chance to explore the medium, collaborate with others, and learn new skills, in a celebration of the unique abilities and perspectives of each attendee! Participants will then have the opportunity to show off their work at the end of the jam to everyone in attendance, and celebrate their creations together!

There is a suggested donation of $20.00 to the Seattle Indies for this event, but is free to anyone who wishes to participate!

If you wish to make a donation, you can do so on the Seattle Indies Paypal Site (https://www.paypal.com/us/fundraiser/charity/2422894).

For liability reasons, this event is 18+, and no alcohol or recreational substances are allowed on site.
