MYO Fall 2014: Space Jam Game Jam

posted Nov 10, 2014, 4:25 PM by Forrest Shooster   [ updated Nov 12, 2014, 3:27 PM ]

The RIT Game Developers Club humbly presents, the next in the Make Your Own Series of Gamejams, the Space Jam Game Jam. This jam has no winners. The idea is to create content. The theme of the game jam is space. That doesn't JUST mean outer space. It also means negative space, spacial changes, changes in space taken up (personal space), or even the space bar. Any use of "space" is permitted.

Also in theme of the event several of us will be attending the Video Games Live performance by the Philharmonic Ochestra at the Eastman Theatre. For Details about what VGL is, see here:
