The Game Devs of Houston GameJam is about bringing people from all around Houston together to have fun and create unique games.
At a gamejam the participants will usually get a topic at the opening event. After that they will have to create a game for that topic within 48h. Only the most creative and wonderful games can win the jam. So it encourages you to try new things and try out new ideas. It’s dangerous to participate at a jam alone, make a friend! As you know by now, this is what it’s all about. So don’t give yourself a hard time by doing everything by yourself. Meet people to help you bring your ideas to life. Or find completely new ideas with them. Be creative together!
As you can see, a gamejam is a great possibility to meet new friends. Additionally we are inviting not only experienced people, we are also encouraging newcomers to participate, so that we have a wide variety of people with all kinds of skill sets. Also we want to show the newbies how wonderful and loving our industry really is.
But we don’t only want to show the newcomers who we are, we also want to show the world outside how open minded and creative our industry really is. Aside from games everyone knows and that games are indeed a form of art.
The Game Devs of Houston Game Jam is organized by a team of game developers, who love game jams themselves and who are passionate about making the industry even more colourful, more open minded and more connected.
