Game Jam Availability Check

Hey everyone!

About two months ago, I posted on the facebook page about the upcoming Global Game Jam (GGJ). For those who don't know, Game Jam is a competition where game designers, artists, and Foley artists come together for 48 or 32 hours to create games based on a common theme. GGJ is an annual world-wide Game Jam, the progress of which is moderated through the GGJ website.

This year, we decided not to register UA as an official location for GGJ. This decision means that we also have the possibility of holding our club's own Game Jam. 

I will elaborate on Game Jams in the following weeks. For now, we are looking for people's availability during the semester. Whatever your talents or backgrounds are, I strongly encourage you to vote. Game Jams are great opportunities to for newbies and veterans alike to gain experience in the field of game design.

GGJ will be happening on the weekend of January 25-27, and there is possibility that we still participate. After voting on the link below, if you have any questions or comments, post them under this entry or on the doodle poll, and I will do my best to address them.
