FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Do I have to bring my own computer?
No! MDS is packed with computers with all sorts of game development software and engines installed, including recent versions of Unity, Unreal, Game Maker, Photoshop, and Maya.

Can I bring my own laptop / computer?
Absolutely! If you'd rather use your own equipment, feel free to do so. We will have limited desks and spaces available.

I don't have a team!?
Part of our kick-off session will be brainstorming ideas and formulating teams! It is here that people identify their strengths and interests and advertise themselves to others -- this impromptu way of finding collaborators is fun and arguably the best way to partake in GGJ!

Can I jam alone / go solo?
Sure you can. Do note that GGJ is a social experience, however, and that most people get the best mileage by partying up with other complimentary heroes :)

Can I jam from home / off-site?
As mentioned, GGJ is a social experience, and the whole point is to be making games alongside other creative, passionate people.
Trust us when we say it's so much more productive and fulfilling when working in the company of other likeminded heroes -- even if - or perhaps particularly if - you're going at it alone.

SEE YOU THEN, JAMMERS!
