If you ever buy a copy of the Union Leader, pick one up on Monday January 25th. That's the day the Manchester paper will name NHTI's own Dr. Charles Lloyd as one of the state's "brightest young achievers"! (Look for the special "40 Under 40" section.)
Global Game Jam @ NHTI
“Create a game … in 48 hours … with the world watching!”
On the weekend of January 29-31, teams of dedicated programmers, artists and musicians will gather in Little Hall to take part in a worldwide game development event. Held simultaneously at over 500 sites in over 80 countries, the Global Game Jam (GGJ) brings together teams of creative individuals who collaborate to create games given the same basic theme and technical constraints. Over 10,000 participants are expected worldwide. NHTI is the only GGJ site in New Hampshire, and one of only four in Northern New England.
“The structure of a jam,” according to the official GGJ web site, “is usually that everyone gathers on Friday late afternoon, watches a short video keynote with advice from leading game developers, and then a secret theme is announced. All sites worldwide are then challenged to make games based on that same theme, with games to be completed by Sunday afternoon. … The GGJ stimulates collaboration, and is not a competition.”
Anyone who would like to join the Game Jam at NHTI should contact Prof. Greg Walek at firstname.lastname@example.org to reserve a spot. Participation is not limited to NHTI students. There is no entrance fee, but participants should be prepared to pay for food. The public is invited to drop by Little Hall at around 5:00 pm Sunday for showings of the finished games
