Come make a game this week with RVA Game Jams!
If you are a beginner, we've got you covered -- we will be having an in-person kickoff event at the College of Engineering, where we will help you form teams and give you tons of tips to set yourself up for success at your very first jam!

    As of now, we do not have an in-person site for all groups to work together -- we will be using our discord server discord.gg/phcvAXwS2x as a virtual jam site and information hub for groups to collab, ask questions, troubleshoot and post progress throughout the weekend! Informal meetups will be coordinated through the discord at the discretion/comfort of individual teams.
