Upcoming Industry Events

Outdoor Game Jam!

Date: July 9, 2015
Time: 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm
Location: Sutton Loop Park (Across the street from Orbit Pinball Lounge)
Description: Join us for the two hours before the July GameDevDrinkup for an outdoor game jam in Sutton Loop Park! Put away your computer, slather on some sunscreen, and come outside to play.

We’ll announce a theme and work in teams of 2-4 to come up with physical folk-style games (think tug-of-war, hopscotch, four-square, etc). Bring frizbees, balls, rope, or whatever you might want to use in order to design your brand new outdoor game. We’ll have from 6:15pm-7:30pm to design our games, then we’ll spend the rest of the time leading up to the 8pm GameDevDrinkup presenting our games, giving everyone the opportunity to play.

If weather looks like it’ll be a problem, we’ll change plans to allow for a smaller-scale physical game jam inside Orbit Pinball Lounge (ages 21+ only). We’ll announce more details about that if it looks like weather will be an issue.
