Jam Site Description: 

Know absolutely nothing about creating a game? Excellent! You're our typical jammer at this site.
Did some coding or interactive narrative before? Beautiful! We're happy to have you here, and you're not alone.
Made a few games before or participated in a previous jam? Wonderful! Thanks for joing us!
Professional or hobbiest developer? Wow! We're honored you want to jam with us. : )

Everyone is welcome, and every skill is useful! Whether you're an artist, a writer, a coder, an editor or tester, a mathmetician, a project manager, or just a really awesome muse, we have a place for you here.

We have several mentors on site happy to help you learn something new or perfect aquired skills. We've got food. We've got fun. We've got software and craft supplies! 

Whether you want to make video games, card games, interactive stories, party games, or board games -- we love them all.
