Hi everybody! Our first game jam of the year is taking place this weekend in Hitchcock 446. We’ll be starting at 8a.m. Saturday (9/3) and ending at 6p.m. on Sunday (9/4). We can’t wait to see you there!
Long story short, there’s going to be a Global Game Jam site in Columbus – and just south of campus at that, next to Lennox Town Center. Check it out and please sign up! It will be a lot of fun, and a lot of experience. Then you can post your game in your portfolio and put the game jam on your resume. Lots of friendly faces will be there. Check out the thread in the forums [click here] to start talking about it, see who’s going, find rides, etc!
Global Game Jame at Tracermedia in Columbus, OH
January 28-30, 2011
Pretty enticing, eh? [;)]
Two awesome events this weekend. Both are beyond being simply worth attending and GCC will be at each in full force!
ACCAD Open House > Friday May 14th, 4pm – 7pm
Most of you should know what ACCAD is and what happens there (incredibly awesome cutting-edge computer arts, animation, research and development); However, many of you probably have not seen some of the projects and work that happens there in person. The open house will have demonstrations of all of their facilities (mocap lab, just upgraded audio/visual recording studios, and brand new and recent/current projects. ACCAD has been graciously supporting GCC and has invited us back to demonstrate our group and our projects in a room dedicated to games. If you’re still not convinced that you need to be at this event, maybe the added incentives of free grub and refreshments will help. So we hope to see you out to have your minds blown and get inspired and motivated to create some awesomeness.
CORGS-CON > Saturday May 15th, 10am – 6pm
The Garys are at it again! CORGS is holding their second annual CORGS Convention this Saturday in the Oakland Park Community Building.
