Gaming AL, a consortium of gaming and esports supporting organizations, in collaboration with the OU Launchpad Entrepreneurship and Esports Center, is taking part in the Global Game Jam in 2023.

The Game Jam.will be on the 2nd floor in the BT214 computer lab.
 
We are excited to partner with Yahaha. Before YAHAHA, making true 3D interactive experiences needed a high level of technical knowhow. YAHAHA brings 3D content creation to every creator with simple and easy tools and templates. With YAHAHA, creators are part of an exciting new social community sharing creative, fun experiences where the only limitation is your imagination.
 
The utilization of the Yahaha game engine will enable everyone the ability develop a game even if this is there first time. By creating and submiting the game you build using the Yahaha platform and filling out the form at the end of the page will enable you to be a part of their rewards and prize pool.
 
Official workshop time with instructions on how to use the Yahaha platform has been set for January 25th-27th, 12-1pm CST. https://www.twitch.tv/globalgamejam
