Global Game Jam starts THIS FRIDAY

Wednesday, January 26th, 2011

The 2011 Global Game Jam starts this Friday at 5pm! If you want to participate, sign up on www.globalgamejam.org. More details at gaim.umbc.edu/global-game-jam.

Note that the total site capacity is limited. If you sign up and your jammer number is larger than 32, you are officially on the wait list. Since we don’t have an admissions fee, there will probably be some no-shows, but we won’t know how many until Friday night. Show up at 5pm, and if there are openings we will take you in jammer number order.
