Global Game Jam!

Jan 13, 2017Posted by Jacqueline Passehl

DePaul is a Global Game Jam site again this year and registration is now open!

GGJ is a great opportunity to have fun, learn something new, and hang out with our community. Whether you’ve done a game jam before or not, It’s recommended to participate! We’ve had people come to the jam with barely any knowledge of game development, its definitely a good learning experience! We also have an alumni and guest speaker, Brandy Camel, delivering a presentation about her role as a Community Manager at Blizzard!!

How to Participate: 
Go to globalgamejam.org > click Participate in a Jam > Login or sign up > Fill out your profile and finish. Once you have a GGJ account, clicking on Participate will take you to the site search, where if you just type in “DePaul,” it will appear at the bottom. Click it, then click “Join this Jam site.” Boom! You’re good to go! Contact Allen Turner at aturner8@cdm.depaul.edu or feel free to ask us at defragboard@gmail.com for questions. Happy Jamming!

Our Game Development Subcommittee is hosting a perforce workshop this Friday, January 13th at 12pm in room 503 of  14 East Jackson (the building across from the depaul center). If you’re a game dev student and are sick of using google drive, or just want to learn about how to use version control better come check it out! Depaul classes mostly use perforce too so you can get a headstart for any future game dev/ or programming classes you need to take!

(This workshop is taking place during a weekly open workspace so feel free to come on by at 11am for working on any game dev project and get feedback from your peers!)
