Do you have what it takes to game jam for 48 hours?

If yes, check out #nyuggj16.

One of the biggest game jams in THE WORLD is happening this weekend here in fair Breuckelen. For 48 hours, gamers will traffic the stage of the NYU Game Center down at the Metrotech creating games in a hive of like-minded people.
Some very impressive games have come out of the NYU Game Jam, including Mushroom 11 and Nina Freeman’s 2014 How Do You Do It.

The game jam starts this Friday at 5 p.m. and ends Sunday at 6 p.m. with a judging ceremony to determine the best games.
“Following the kick-off, folks start to share ideas, form teams, and make games,” the invite says. “We’ll have coffee, and there’s lots of food located within a short walk from the floor. Our location has tons of non-digital prototyping materials, but any digital hardware you’ll need to bring (laptops, controllers, etc.).”
The game jam is free and open to the public.
