Jam Site Description: 

For 2022, IGDA DC is hosting another online global game jam site! We do not have any limitations on location or time zone, but all event times will be in EST. We will be using Discord to form teams, collaborate, and create games for the jam. You can join with this link: https://discord.gg/TqvSkbFpdE

You don't need to come with a team already, you can group up after the theme has been announced. Additionally, you can work in any group size you wish, though 2-5 people is best for this event. Collaboration is the name of the game here. All skill levels welcome, even if you haven't made a game before! Game jams are about learning and experimentation, and there will be plenty of people you can learn from no matter what level of skill you join with.

We will have some tutorials throughout the event, and volunteers will be on hand to help you a

Any questions before the jam can be directed to [email protected], or come to the discord server and feel free to ask questions there.
