The Global Game Jam takes place this coming weekend, and our local organisers are the aptly named Scottish Game Jam. Now in its fifth year, the SGJ has grown to encompass not just the original site at Glasgow Caledonian University, but also venues in Dundee and Edinburgh. In total, more than 200 people around the country will be taking part in what promises to be the biggest and best jam yet. The problem is, with the jammers spread all round the country, how can we come together as a community and enjoy each other’s games, and of course determine which game is the Best in Scotland!
Who better than IGDA Scotland to help with this? As we did last year, we’ll be hosting the “Game Jam Play Party”, allowing everyone to get together, have a chat and play some of the games that have been created during the jam. This is a great opportunity to check out what some of the aspiring (as well as established) game developers of Scotland can make in just a limited time. You can catch a recap of the 2012 event here.
We’re also going to be using this to try a slightly new addition to our events that we’ve seen work very well for other chapter – the “Open Mic” announcements. If you’ve got something to say, whether it be a reminder about an upcoming release or a job vacancy, you can reach everyone at the meeting in one go during this quick-fire period.
Please don’t miss out on the start of our meeting schedule for 2013. Make sure you’re registered through Eventbrite, and don’t forget – Feb 13th, Admiral Bar in Glasgow!
