Subject: New Mexico Game Jam, Start Friday at 5pm on August 22 to August 24, 2014 at the FatPipe ABQ,

See attached flyer

Please join New Mexico Game Jam this starting Friday at 5pm, August 22 to Sunday, August 24, 2014 at the Fatpipe ABQ, 200 Broadway Blvd NE, Albuquerque, NM 87102. $10 Entry Fee collected onsite.

New Mexico Game jam was founded in 2009 by Jon Whetzel and Eric Renz-Whitmore. It is an effort to bring more opportunity for game development to New Mexico and has been instrumental in bringing together and kindling the collaborations and startups that are happening today. This 6th Game Jam continues that tradition, bringing together old timers and hopefully building new relationships and new opportunities for game development growth in New Mexico.

All code and assets must be developed during that time period or be part of a widely available toolset or asset collection.
Entries must be turned in to site coordinators by 5pm on Sunday and must include a playable version of the game, instructions on how to play (and how to win for judging), and a video highlighting the best parts of the game.
Prizes will be given to the top three contestants based on judging by an unbiased group. They’ll be given out a judging event held two weeks after the event. Games and videos can be improved on over the two weeks and the latest version presented at the judging event, but only the 48 hour version will be judged.​
