What is Indie Galactic Space Jam?

Well its Orlando’s collaborative Game Dev Event
working closely with the Space Industry

Indie·Galactic·Space·Jam
noun
1. an event in which individuals come together in a physical environment and attempt, in a limited amount of time, to rapidly prototype a game (video or otherwise) focused on some element of space; a “space-y” game jam: She was on the team that made that awesome game I love at the Indie Galactic Space Jam!

This is the first Indie Galactic Space Jam, and we’re excited to bring our experiences in planning the local Global Game Jam to this opportunity to build with our talented peers here in Central Florida. You will be part of a team, or a lone (space) wolf, charting a course to fun and excitement.

Everyone is welcome to participate throughout the 48 hour Jam. We’re looking for artists, programmers, game designers, UI & UX designers, sound designers, writers, poets, interpretive dancers, people excited about games, people excited about space, people who like to eat pizza, and people like you. Please sign up, and get ready to jam!

So how does the event go?

Through the chaos of development comes something beautiful

Our 48-Hour Mission

Central Florida is brimming with tech talent- you know it, we know it; it’s time to work together and let everyone else know it!

Our goal is to bring together people from various creative and technical fields to develop fun games that generate excitement among the public about space travel & exploration. Our dream is that these same individuals find new ways to work together and form lasting relationships, that we bring the national spotlight onto Central Florida for our unique combinations of talent, and that the games we make help to promote interest in STEM education to the generations that will carry these concepts into the future.

 

Compelling Games require
a smart mix of combined skills
