The Plan

The SJSU Learning and Games Consortium(LGC) is hosting the Global Game Jam (GGJ) on campus January 24-26, 2014.

GGJ is open to all. Students from all majors are encouraged to sign up at http://globalgamejam.org

and to join our jam site (under construction) http://globalgamejam.org/2014/jam-sites/san-josé-state-university GGJ is focused on collaboratively creating games under a to be announced theme with a diverse group of jammers from various disciplines.

SJSU officially launches Friday Jan 24 at 5pm and culminates on Sunday Jan 26 with game presentations at 4:30. More details will be sent out in the upcoming weeks to participants.

You do not need to be on a team to register (we will do some team forming on site) and “Although having computer skills is helpful, code experience is not necessary. Designers, developers, artists and anyone is welcome to try their hand at making a game during the GGJ.” Web skills, marketing skills, testing skills production management and many other things are necessary to successfully create a game.

Comments

It is good information for the participants. Under this global game plan, they can get a chance to see the different games activities. I really appreciate the University management efforts for the students so that they can also come up with new ideas. In this way, they can get opportunities to explore themselves in this field. They can also learn all the technical skills related to the games. Using all these skills they can also develop a game. Good resources are very helpful for us to explore or develop our skills. Buy essay custom is also a resource which is helping me in my writing work.
