Montserrat College of Art is proud to announce that it is hosting the 2nd Annual North Shore Game Jam in conjunction with the Global Game Jam! The 32 hour weekend event will take place starting from 5pm Friday January 29th through 7pm Sunday, January 31st 2016 at Montserrat College of Art in Beverly, MA. https://www.facebook.com/events/1704649549782884/
All levels of game developers are welcome from the merely curious to the very experienced. We will be working with and encourage both analog and digital game development (video games to board games to card games etc). We welcome everyone and you don’t need to be specifically affiliated with Montserrat College to participate. You don’t need to have designed a game before and you don’t need to like programming. Various assets and skills are essential like writing, art, animation, sound, and level design. Teams need a mix of people with various backgrounds and experience. You can come to the jam with your team in place or we will help you find a team to work with based on your particular skills and interests.
Global Game Jam is the premier annual game creation event that fosters the development of innovative game concepts and promotes international collaboration and teamwork. GGJ brings together thousands of game development enthusiasts participating through many local jams around the world on a single weekend. GGJ has proven itself to be an incubator for creative experiments and new start-ups. Some of the successes have included games being published and exciting collaboration opportunities for participants.
Entrance Fee: None, this event is free and open to the public
