To work with people you might not otherwise meet, to show off your skills and creativity and to get respect for making great and innovative games under extreme time constraints!
The DePaul Game Jam ’13 is the sixth annual game jam in Chicago and it will be held between Jan 25 – Jan 27 2013. The event is non-profit and it is organized by the College of Computing and Digital Media at DePaul University.
Once again, the DePaul Game Jam is part of the IGDA Global Game Jam that takes place all over the world during (mostly) the same 48 hours. The Global Game Jam will start at 5:00p Friday, January 25, 2013 through 3:00pm Sunday, January … Read More »
