Please send me a message for invite, due to this being in my house, there is limited space available and I can't just accept everyone blindly because of this. About 8-10 people can come.

You can sleep in here, but you should probably bring a sleeping bag and maybe a tent (there is plenty of room in the garden), but there is a bit of space inside too.

The entrance fee is for snacks and beberages (non-alcoholic).
Smoking is only allowed outside (in the garden).
If there is extra money, it will be given to the owner of the house (which isn't me, although I do live there).

Messages will be answered within 24 hours.

UPDATED 1/26

We are confirmed open all 48 hours! Thanks once again to the Nerdery for being great and flexible hosts!

246 sites worldwide, GGJ expects 10,000 jammers and 2,000 games! Guiness will be tracking (really.) http://gamejaminabox.org/

Please register on this site by noon Fri 12/27. Please remove yourself if plans change.

Partial attendance can be OK if you work it out with your team. But, we really want people there Fri for intro, pitches, and team formation. Ideally by 5pm. Comment below if you will be late, and what time (aprox.) SVN will be on the internet, probably at Assembla. Skype should work great also. The Nerdery tubes are 100mb or 40mb symmetric depending on destination.

http://offers.assembla.com/free-project-hosting/index.html

Please fill out your profile. Include name, picture, contact info (not published - IM or Other/Email, no phone #), and skills. Use the notes field for very brief bio and preferences (Examples: prefer 3D modeling in Maya/Mudbox, 2D art/animation in Flash, Experienced in Unity, Bringing a Mac - no right clicking, that last one was a joke.)

We will have multiple teams, projects and platforms. You're welcome to work on multiple teams. Teams can be as small as 2 or 3. Pitch meetings and team formation will happen the first night. Everything is fair game. From random convos, likely tech stacks are: Unity, HTML5, Flash, board games.

Software freebies:

The Unity Pro license is through 2/1, it did work on 3.5 RC1.
Some audio goodies are forthcoming.

Schedule

Fri
4:30pm: setup
~5pm: receive assignment, watch 30min keynote video, Q&A, eat pizza - thanks Nerdery!
~6pm: introduction and pitches, team formation.

Sat
mid-day: Each team should register their game/project on this site.

Sun
3pm stop work and begin upload (must complete before 5pm.)
~3:30pm: We will demo games to each other, quick logistics brainstorm for our 2/8 IGDATC GGJ Play Party, and pack up.

Yep, it's that simple.

Joysticks/gamepads and other

Bring joysticks/gamepads if you have them. Many game types suck on keyboard. Recommendations: Xbox 360 wired, PS3 wired/bluetooth, Xbox 360 wireless (need wireless dongle.)

http://www.gamepadjs.com/
https://github.com/STRd6/Boomstick/wiki

iOS devices will probably get used, see Brass Monkey in the software promos.
Other (Kinect, Move, webcam, dance pads, etc.) If you can pitch it, bring it. You only have to convince 1 or 2 other people. It will limit who can play, but it could also make your title stand out from the expected 2000 games!

Facilities

We're based in the classromm, but can wander in the lunch area and Nerditorium (after the movie finishes 9pm Fri.)
We have chairs, desks, tables, beanbags, whiteboards, projetor, etc. A dedicated subnet and WAP to ensure we can test peer to peer net code.

Please bring a power strip if you have one. Also, ethernet cables if you need/want it. Speakers, any other weird misc things you can think of.

Food

Full kitchen with microwaves, sinks, fridges available. Snacks, soda and coffee onsite. Bring cash in small bills if you want to do group food buys (eg bring in bagles in am.)
