Jam #3 : 12 May, 2012

Jam #3 will run from between 2:00 PM EST – 6:00 PM EST (GMT -5) on Saturday, 5 May, 2012 2:00 PM EST – 6:00 PM EST on Saturday, 12 May, 2012.

Take note of the date. It’s delayed a week due to the GMC Jam.

The rules will be the same as in Jam #1. No theme.

How do I join?

Sign up here. It’s not mandatory but I’d like to get a head count.

IRC: irc://irc.boredicons.com/4hourjam

Any one of the above IRC clients, #4hourjam at irc.boredicons.com . Or if you’d rather use your own client, I’d recommend the following:

ChatZilla: Firefox addon
Miranda: Open-source standalone

And how exactly is this going to work?

Join, make something (or show people what you’re currently making), get feedback. At the end, I’ll collect links to all the running projects to feature in a post-mortem post (with your permission, of course).

Do I have to make games?

Not at all. You can draw, or something. Or sit and watch. Everything’s good.

Do I have to start anew?

Not for this jam. This one isn’t a competition, just a showcase for what everyone’s working on.

Questions? Join the IRC, or email me at thatsnail [at] gmail [dot] com.
