Louie Ghiz welcomes Game Jam participants


A Game Jam is a great starting point for people looking to get into game development and an incredible chance to collaborate. No matter your experience, if you love games, can self direct your work, and have a positive attitude a “Jam” is a perfect place to showcase your talents.

Learn about our local industry and meet people from the community to collaborate and build video games over the course of a weekend. Work in a space full of programmers, artists, musicians and more to rapidly develop a working video game in a supportive environment.

If you’ve ever been curious about what it takes to make a game this is your chance!
