Games Now! Online Jam is organized by Aalto University Games Now! lecture series. The jam is open for anyone interested to participate.  We will kick-off each jam with a 2 hour Twitch talk show in https://www.twitch.tv/gamesnowaaltofi. The design constraint for each jam is revealed during the show by a visiting game developer. During the show, the visitor and hosts will play games that show the how the design constraint have been applied in games. After the jam the submitted games will be played and discussed in a similar talk show with the same visitor. The closing talk show will take place in the following Monday at 15.00 UTC. 

Our first developer guest is Samuli Jääskeläinen from Varjo! Samuli has been really active game jammer since 2012. He has extensive understanding on the game jam scene and been traveling to many countries participating various jams. We are looking forward to chat with him about game jams in general as well as the design constraint, and games he has picked!

The Games Now! Online Jam is a part of an ongoing research project at Aalto University in Finland, tackling the issue how online game jam with a Twitch show can be utilized in university teaching. For the purposes of the study, all jammers participating in the jam are asked to fill in a short survey after submitting their game. Participating in the survey is voluntary and anonymous. Submitted games will also be analyzed for the study. The collected data is not used in any commercial purposes, will be stored in an appropriate manner and will only be handled by the Games Now! Research team. 

For any inquiries concerning the study contact: ville.kankainen@aalto.fi
