Over the weekend game designers and developers from all around the Tulsa area joined forces to work on a game for the Global Game Jam in just 48-hours.
The Global Game Jam® (GGJ) is the world’s largest game jam event (game creation) taking place around the world at physical locations. This year’s our Tulsa location was hosted by the University of Tulsa student SIGGRAPH Chapter.
Fulled by plenty of snacks throughout the weekend students, indie developers and enthusiasts came together to build a game around this year’s Global Game Jam theme, “What Does Home Mean To You”
This year’s event had over 25 jamers registered and connecting with each other.
“This is a great way to bring all types of game designers and developers together, networking with each other, and building the community right here in Tulsa.” says, Akram Taghavi-Burris, TU instructor of Computer Simulation and Gaming, and faculty sponsor for the event.
Overall the event was a great success and the participants had a great time working on their games.
