First Time Jammers?

Here are some survival tips!

  • Don't’ forget all the equipment you need to build a game. Bring what you do best!!
    • Laptop?
    • Keyboard? Pen? Paper? Tablet?
    • Prototyping Pieces?
    • Instrument?
  • If your bringing a laptop, make sure all the software is up-to date, Internet may be a bit slow with everyone updating at the same time
  • Don’t forget to sleep! Make sure you feel refreshed as possible so you can focus on the Jam!
  • Don’t forget about food!
  • Don’t be afraid to drop ideas, try things, work with your group! I remember you only have 48 hours.
