The Progressive Game Jam Demo Feedback

Hacker Lab | Startup Coworking Maker Space

In its 5th year, the Progressive Game Jam is an ongoing annual game jam designed to provide participants with a team and enough time necessary to make a quality video game in 9 months. The Sacramento Developer Collective and Square One Clubs are once again hosting this year's PGJ, and we'll provide guidance and mentoring, and a place to meet once a month for the next 9 months. The Progressive Game Jam is a 9 month long game jam where you work with a dedicated team on a single video game. The goal is to build as complete a video game as possible in that time, and to gain valuable development skills, and learn just what it takes to make a full video game. The Sacramento Developer Collective is dedicated to helping you along the way by providing guidance, mentor ship, and support to help you achieve your goal. This event is free and open to everyone. All skills are welcome, whether you are a programmer, artist, level designer, sound engineer, storyteller, or simply just want to help provide ideas for a game. That includes all skill-levels from novice to expert, or maybe you are just learning and looking for a great place to start. Everyone is welcome. If you have equipment or software, you are encouraged to bring them. Laptops work great. Papers and pens do too! If you don't, that's OK too. Your creative ideas and input are still valuable, and usually someone on your team will share or let you work with them. Square One Clubs will provide enough electricity and high-speed Internet for everyone. We'll also have whiteboards available for brainstorming ideas. From time to time, we'll have a sponsor bring in lunch, but generally lunch is your responsibility. Check on the event pages for those lunch opportunities before you come. You are welcome to bring food and drink to eat, and there are several venues in the area around Square One Clubs. We'll have them posted for your convenience. While we encourage you to show up for the first event where games are pitched and teams are formed, if you just can't make it, don't worry. Teams tend to change a little throughout the event, and it's always possible to come in late and join a team. Good Luck to the Class of 2019!
