GameJam, an annual contest that challenges Taylor University’s students in the Computer Science and Engineering Department, begins this week.

A soft start is scheduled for 6 pm, Thursday, April 15, and the “hard” start will be at 6 pm, Friday, April 16. 

According to Taylor Professor Dr, John Denning, each team can have as many participants as they wish to help with graphics, audio, level design, etc., but the limit is two coders per team.

Denning said all coding must be from scratch. There will be a play test time at 5 pm on Saturday, April 17, where games can be tested and feedback given.

At 10 pm, Saturday, April 17, games will be presented by team, played, and judged.

All are welcome to stop by any time, especially during the presentation and judging time. This is a CSE Sanctioned Event for game developers, game play testers, and judges.

There is a $10/participant fee to cover the cost of snacks, drinks, trophies, etc.
