The Cardinal Game Jam is our one and only game jam event. Think of it as a hackathon focused on game development. Come make games, learn how to make games, or play games!   Our goal is to bring together people with all kinds of backgrounds to contribute to game development and creativity. It is an opportunity to push boundaries and collaborate on a fast-paced challenge.  Anyone is welcome to attend. Just bring your computer, toothbrush, and enthusiasm!

We encourage you to plan your game in advance. Before the game jam, you can: pre-install software on your laptop; setup infrastructure (hosting, DNS, SSL, empty github repo, etc.); design a logo and create a color scheme; create wireframes, mockups, and user flows; and write documentation for your proposed design

Art/Audio Assets may be created in advance of the event.

All code, outside of public libraries and development tools/platforms available to all participants attending the game jam, should be completed during The Cardinal Game Jam. Please don't start coding before noon on November 14.  

On-site participants may stay for the entire time or leave and return as convenient.  

Electricity, Internet, and space will be provided. Participants are responsible for bringing their own equipment, including at least one phone they can build and demonstrate on.
