Announcing our theme for Ripples of Change Game Jam! "Engineering with Water" This could be anything you can think of relating to controlling water, moving water, cleaning water, treating water, etct.... I hope that everyone has a great time participating!
The South Dakota State University chapter of Engineers Without Borders is about to embark on a second journey to Bolivia for the purpose of ensuring that the Unidad Academica Campesina college in Carmen Pampa has access to clean water. When the team at Mantis Digital Arts became aware of this, they set to work thinking of how to bring attention to this great initiative. The obvious answer: a game jam!
Meghan Danielson, the president of the local chapter, explains the goals for their project in the video below.
We are looking for developers, designers, artists, composers, and others who are interested in forming teams or working solo to create games or other interactive experiences. The goal of this jam is to bring exposure to what Engineers Without Borders is doing in Bolivia and to bring together the community of game designers for a great cause.
As such, we want you to tell the world about why you're building this game and why you felt compelled to participate. Take to Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn, Google, whatever social network you want. Tell people in your local coffee shop as you congregate to plan your attack. Mention it to your friends and family. Everyone you tell helps us spread the message farther. If they want to donate, even better. They can click the 'Donate' button on the project's page.
Planning to organize a local event around the jam? We'd love to hear from you.
