Have you ever wanted to try to make a video game? Join us and make your own! The anime NEW GAME! (available 11/21 on Blu-ray/DVD combo) follows a newly-hired character designer at an indie game development company and is a must-watch for anyone who wants a peek into the industry!
To celebrate the release, we’re inviting you to participate in the NEW GAME! Game Jam over the weekend of November 3rd! What’s a Game Jam? These are events where people form teams to make an entire video game from start to finish in the span of a short time—such as 48 hours. Game Jams are held in universities and video game companies as a great way to practice making a finished game. There are even fan-run game jams where teams across the country plan to make games at the same time!
To participate in the NEW GAME! Game Jam, just make a game during that weekend and share some of your progress on social media with the hashtag #NEWGAMEJam—and then tag us with a link to your finished game! We’ll share some of everyone’s progress and submitted games.
Is it your first time attempting a Game Jam? Here are some steps:
