Congratulations to all Jammers!

Thanks to all Jammers who came to the 2nd Annual GMU Game Jam! We had 65 Jammers registered and 18 games submitted, and everyone had a great time making games throughout the weekend.

Without further ado, I now present the winners of the GMU Game Jam Developers' Choice Awards:

1st) T-Rex Arm Wrestling
2nd) Last Stand
3rd) Make It Stop

Thanks again to all who participated and especially to GMU for graciously hosting us over the weekend! We'll see you at our next Jam!


Events after the Jam


After the Jam is completed, the IGDA and DC Games Gateway will have a joint meeting at which you'll be able to show off your games on Monday night in DC. Please come out if you're in the area!


Room Change

Jammers, please come to Fine Arts 206 - this will be the primary space for the Jam. It's just a short distance north from the Arts and Design Building.

External HDDs

Jammers, if you've got them, please bring external hard drives to the Jam, as the PCs in the lab run Deep Freeze and reset nightly. Of course, you're welcome to bring your own laptop and won't be subject to the nightly backup requirement. Additionally, you're welcome to bring your own snacks for personal dietary requirements, and pillows if you'd like to crash in the lounge during the Jam. For those who'd like to sleep in style, there is a hotel on campus.

Looking forward to seeing you all tomorrow!
