Global Game Jam 2019 - Skellefteå
16:00 The Great Northern, Storgatan 53, 931 30 Skellefteå, Sverige
Välkommen till Global Game Jam!
( Scroll down for english!.... )

Vi startar på fredag eftermiddag, då delar vi upp oss i lag och temat presenteras. På söndag tittar vi igenom slutresultaten.

Vi har möjlighet att erbjuda enklare sovplatser utan kostnad. Lokalen för övernattning blir på Shimbukans Dojo. Sovsaker behövs därför packas med.

Global Game Jam har tyvärr 18-årsgräns. Det är dock ingen kostnad att vara med.

Mackor, frukt, kaffe etc. kommer att finnas utan kostnad på jammet och vi bjuder även på pizza lördag kväll.

Vi tar med vår teknik från labbet så det kommer finnas ett antal några datorer, HTC Vive och en hololens att arbeta med. I första hand behöver ni dock ta med egna datorer.

Samåkning till Skellefteå koordineras av Arctic Game Lab.
