And then on Friday, January 25th at 5:00 PM we'll be kicking off our annual Global Game Jam event all weekend long. Shaker LaunchHouse has kindly allowed us to use their space for this epic three day event where people will be creating games over 40+ hours. We'll be bringing in snacks and drinks for the weekend and hopefully a dinner or two as well. These events are a lot of fun and it's always fascinating to watch projects, teams and ideas come together.  To learn more about the Global Game Jam event or to purchase tickets, just follow the links below.­­­
