Every quarter, you say to yourself "Gosh, game jams are great. There are so many jams to choose from, too—but after week three or so I just don't have the time to commit an entire weekend to a jam. If only there was a game jam that scheduled itself around the academic calendar!"
GOOD NEWS. Slug Jam is back! Slug Jam schedules itself around the academic calendar! Incredible!
Slug Jam is a one-day game jam especially for UCSC students. There will be a physical workspace on campus at the Digital Arts Research Center Room 108 from 10A–6P. Both the jam and the workspace are open to the public.
How to win Slug Jam: Make a quick and dirty prototype that you think you might want to continue working on over the rest of the quarter. Make something simple in a new engine or technology. Make a board game. Make a twitterbot that writes haiku. Just make something!
Bonus goals: Meet some of the folks who make games here at UCSC! Collaborate with somebody new!
Be prepared: Bring some snacks for yourself or to share, bring headphones, bring whatever you think you'll need.
