As Dan said a while back, now is the best time to be making games; with Unity 5 and Unreal 4 now easily available and the appearance of high quality games out of 'simple' game engines like Gamemaker (Gunpoint and Nuclear Throne, etc.) he is very much right. To this extent I feel it's also the best time to host a NerdCubed community game jam as game jams are one of the best ways to learn how to make games. They provide a theme, a deadline and a reason to have fun and actually make a short but playable game instead of just sitting there and procrastinating all day.
The theme is 'NerdCubed Out of Context' take any quote from a N3 video that inspires you. Check the NerdCubed out of context blogs (new and old) for some interesting examples. Although remember to include the quote you use in your game, some context is always helpful.
The jam will last from the 1st to the 31st of July giving everyone a whole month to make a game. In fact you can make as many or as few games as you wish; length, playability, even basic functionality is entirely optional. This is a game jam for fun, entries won't be rated and anything goes (within reason ofc).
