Meet local developers and creatives, play their games from the recent Global Game Jam, and learn what really goes into creating a game at the Frederick Game Jam Showcase.
At the end of January 21 members of Frederick Game Development Meetup gathered at Cowork Frederick to participate in the Global Game Jam, an international hackathon for game makers. Working under a tight deadline and assigned theme, developers, artists, musicians, and writers shared skills to create original games in just 48 hours. At the end of the weekend an impressive 7 games were submitted to the Global Game Jam’s website.
This is a great opportunity for gaming enthusiasts of all ages to learn about the different aspects of game design, meet local talent, and play a variety of game styles. From cooperative adventures to single player fighters to choose-your-own-adventure narratives there will be something for everyone to enjoy.
Attendance is free, but Frederick Game Dev will be accepting donations online or at the event. All proceeds will help cover the cost of future game jams.
