During the event, to begin Friday evening at the Wyoming Technology Business Center, programmers and designers of all skill levels will collaborate to create playable video games.
What exactly is a Game Jam? A Game Jam is a two-day session where people collaborate together to create playable video games. Attendees will form groups to program the code, design the art and graphics, fashion a musical score, create sound effects and architect the gameplay. The objective is two part; create a functional and emersible game, and to create synergy and provide experience in the game design field.
At the same time participants are working in Casper, others will be working at hundreds of locations around the world.
According to organizers, the event encourages people with all kinds of backgrounds to participate and contribute to the global spread of game development and creativity.
