The great people involved with Nashville Game Developers have come together to bring Nashville its very own game jam! The purpose of this event is to not only learn the basics of game design, but to make it as easy as possible for anyone (yes, anyone!) to participate.

The game jam will be using itch.io to publish the games, so if you want you can make an account ahead of time and join the group:

On Friday night, the teams will form up and spend the weekend writing, coding, and scoring an original game. If you don't have design experience, or are not tech-savvy, don't worry! There are plenty of ways to contribute and everyone is welcome. You'll make new friends and have a working game by the end!
Friday night is also when the theme is provided, which the teams will have to use as a basis for their games. However, the theme is broad enough to accommodate lots of different ideas and approaches. But don't worry about any of this—everyone's in this together and there will be plenty of help and guidance along the way.
Here are the details:
