We are pleased to announce the GameCamp! Game Jam for 2016. This game jam is different from most others: you have the entire month of May to complete your projects, which should allow time for folks who want to learn new software or skills. Final games are due on May 31.

Teams that complete the game jam will receive shirts commemorating this achievement, other swag, and chances to win exciting prizes like Unity® Licenses, t-shirts, gift cards, and more!

Teams are limited to a maximum of 3 members, but platform and materials are unlimited! Board games, card games, and other analog forms are welcome. Your team can register for the jam here: http://goo.gl/forms/6lLR1j39xg

The GameCamp! Game Jam Launch Event is Friday, April 29, beginning at 5pm in the ModLab. In addition to unveiling the game jam theme, the launch event will also provide a space for participants to form and finalize teams, begin brainstorming game ideas, and enjoy free food.

The Launch Event is open to members of the UC Davis community interested in and supportive of game development here on campus. Participating in the game jam is not a requirement to attend, so come and celebrate game development here at UC Davis. There will be free food.
