Notes: 

The UC Davis Global Game Jam 2019 is coming up on Friday, January 25 at 4PM to Sunday, January 27 at 2PM in the Art Annex and you're invited!

WHAT?
The Global Game Jam is the world’s largest game jam event that takes place globally over the span of a weekend. A game jam can be thought of as a hackathon, but for the creation of small games! You can work in teams or on your own to create any game your heart desires, whether it be an analog tabletop game or a digital videogame, BUT your creation must be based on the SECRET theme that will be announced just before the jam begins. So join us for a weekend of fun, creativity, and games at UC Davis as we take on #UCDGGJ19 together! All welcome, no previous game dev experience required!

WHEN?
4:00PM on Friday, January 25th to 2:00PM on Sunday, January 27th (but you don’t have to stay the entire time! See schedule for event details!)

WHERE?
UC Davis Art Annex, Room 107; Hutchison Dr, Davis, CA 95616 (but there will be other available work spaces on campus as well!)

In Taste of Home, you play as a stray dog looking to find his home with a young girl while her step-father continues to separate them.
E.M.O.H is the spirit of a loving home, and she couldn't stand seeing you anymore spending all your time with friends and work while not treasuring your home- something craved by many.
