Atlanta Georgia SCAD-Atlanta (Relocated)

Join This Jam Site
Notes: 

IGNORE THE ABOVE MAP

Update: due to an emergency, this site has been relocated to Southern Polytechnic State University (SPSU) campus, Building J, Room 202.

Point of contact is now Andrew Greenberg. Atlanta Jammers, you should've received an email seeking your team's info. Please respond to it by noon today. If you did not get the email, let Mr. Greenberg know!

 

Last evening we lost a dear friend in our gaming community. Tony Tseng was a mentor, a co-worker, a teacher, a loving father, a husband, and to many of us a close friend. In honor of his organization of this year's Global Gam Jam in Atlanta, and what should have been one of the largest sites (if not the largest), in the US - we are still jamming.  If you left on Friday, we're here, going strong, and developing games in Tony's memory. We invite you to come back and join us at SPSU.

If you have any thoughts, wisdom, or memories of Tony you would like to share, please use #GGJ15 and #tonytseng and help us to spread Tony's spirit with the rest of the world.

 

While Building J at SPSU is now the main site (http://spsu.edu/visitspsu/campusmaps/index.htm), satellite locations are welcome too. If you join the SPSU contingent, go to room 202 and work there or in an adjacent room.

THE DOORS TO BUILDING J LOCK AT MIDNIGHT. Please get there before, and have a phone contact to let you back in if you leave. In worst case situations, call Molly Proffitt at 615-478-0814.

Please note that food is NOT included in this, and, since this is a last-minute arrangement, no special arrangements have been made for security. Everyone here is an adult, and we know you can take care of your things and each other. There will be classes in the building Saturday, so please keep the building clean and change rooms as necessary. This is guerrilla jamming at its best, so LEAVE NO TRACE.

Anyone interested in working with Berklee Colleges Video Game Music Club, contact [email protected] with info. They have good people more than happy to help implement music and sound for Global Game Jam games
