This is a month-long slow game jam for students at the University of Pittsburgh. Folks will have a month to create a game based on a theme that will be announced at the start of the jam. The jam will end during finals week, so we recommend participants don't wait until the last minute!
With the University of Pittsburgh running all of its courses remotely for the rest of the semester, we were looking for ways to do something fun like a hack-a-thon or game jam remotely. Practicing healthy social distancing doesn't need to get in the way of building a community for game developers at Pitt! The infrastructure itch.io offers was perfect for us to hold this event.
All Pitt students (undergraduate and graduate) are welcome to participate and compete for prizes. Other members of the Pitt community (and non-Pitt folks, if you happened to stumble on this page) are welcome to participate but are not eligible to receive prizes.
This jam is hosted by the Pitt student organization Games-Edu, Pat Healy (PhD Student in Information Science), Brandon Hedges (Adjunct Professor in Information Science), and Dmitriy Babichenko (Clinical Associate Professor in the School of Computing and Information).
This specific video of Three Dog Night performing "One" is the theme of the jam.
