2011 Global Game Jam Comes to Syracuse

This year the IGDA Global Game Jam comes to Syracuse, NY.  The main goal of Global Game Jam is to bring people together to create digital and non-digital games during a weekend long event. It's an intense 3-day session (Jan. 28-30, 2011) being held at Syracuse University, literally running all day and night, allowing participants to be fully immersed in the experience of designing, prototyping and developing games.

The best part of this year's event?  I'll be there.  I look forward to working with students, designers, developers, and game enthusiasts from around the country (world?).

If you'd like to know more about the Syracuse event and register to participate, check out their site:
