Register for Global Game Jam at SU—a 48-hour game creation event this weekend!
Syracuse University is a host site for 2012 Global Game Jam, starting this Friday. If you want to make a game—video, mobile, board, whatever—join this 48-hour event. You don’t even have to be an SU student!
Worldwide at different locations, Global Game Jam is happening Jan. 27-29. This is the second year in a row that SU will be a Global Game Jam site. The event is presented by the iSchool, School of Education and The College of Arts and Sciences. Global Game Jam at SU will take place at Huntington Hall.
The event will start in the afternoon at 3 p.m. on Friday when the theme for the games will be announced. Teams will develop games over Friday evening, Saturday, and Sunday morning. Participants will contribute games to the Global Game Jam project to live alongside all of the other games made over the weekend from other venues around the world. Participants come back together on Sunday afternoon and demonstrate what folks have made. The specific hours of the Global Game Jam at SU are: Friday 3 p.m.-11:30 p.m.; Saturday 8:30 a.m.-11:30 p.m.; and Sunday 8:30 a.m. – 6:30 p.m.
