Mt Sierra College was a host for the Global Game Jam event once again. Seven teams gathered to make their own game with the theme of waves applied. Within a 48-hour period each team creating amazing and creative games. Thank you to Max’s Cuisine, Wendy’s, Monrovia Pizza Co., and Sierra Madre Catering for feeding our hard working jammers. Thank you to Top Designs for printing our shirts.
The Global Game Jam® (GGJ) is the world’s largest game jam event (game creation) taking place around the world at physical locations. Think of it as a hackathon focused on game development. It is the growth of an idea that in today’s heavily connected world, we could come together, be creative, share experiences and express ourselves in a multitude of ways using video games – it is very universal. The weekend stirs a global creative buzz in games, while at the same time exploring the process of development, be it programming, iterative design, narrative exploration or artistic expression. It is all condensed into a 48 hour development cycle. The GGJ encourages people with all kinds of backgrounds to participate and contribute to this global spread of game development and creativity.
