We've joined up for our first ever Game Jam.

There's 2 of us, a Dad and Son team. We've joined up so my son can get some realistic experience of the process of development; we're going really overboard for a GameJam for this purpose and have version control, Kanban boards, issues & task trackers all set ready to go. We're even planning some "focus groups" and "play-testing" - helps to have younger brothers sometimes.

Hopefully it'll be a start on his portfolio too to get him out of the catch-22 of "can't get a job due to lack of experience - can't get experience due to jack of a job".

I'm doing it to learn Unity and as a refresher for my C++, it's been a few years since I used it last (yes I know Unity works better with C#). 

We'll be starting a day late too as we'll still be in holiday for the first day.

Wish us luck & good luck to everyone else!

Cheers

Geoff & Jack

Good luck! Sounds like a really cool thing to do with your family!

If you're using Github and want someone to test and post issues let me know :3
