Update: So Many Rooms is now live. 30 rooms and counting. Go play some rooms.
Tomorrow (Jan 29,2010) is the first day of “Room Jam“, Winnipeg’s next game development jam.
What is a “game jam”? It’s an event were game developers get together and build games over the course of a couple of days.
So what is “Room Jam“? It’s an idea I came up with a few months ago. Everyone builds their own ‘room’ containing its own gameplay, art style, etc. We then put them all together into one large seamless crazy awesome game. Players would then progress from one random room to the next. We call it: “So Many Rooms“.
So you have some idea, here are some of Winnipeg’s previous jams:
- PegJam (TIG Jam Winnipeg) – http://infiniteammo.ca/blog/tigjam-winnipeg-retrospective/
- Winnitron Jam – http://infiniteammo.ca/blog/winnitron-news/
The great part is that you don’t have to live here to participate, people will be working and submitting room from all over the world. There is still time to signup and build your own room, visit somanyrooms.com for details.
