Subject: Global Game Jam and Unity Game Engine Introductory Course.
To: Bill Rogers <coms0108(a)cs.waikato.ac.nz>
I'm sending this to all CS and CGD students, 2015 GGJ participants and
High School Entrants in the NZ Programming Contest. If you are
interested, good. If not feel free to pass it on to anyone you know
who might be. If it is unwelcome spam, sorry about that.
Global Game Jam is just over two weeks away. As usual we are running
a site at Waikato University. On Friday 29th we kick off at 5pm with
the 2016 Jam. We are also running an introductory session on using
the Unity Game Engine prior to the jam on Thursday 21st January (just
over one week away).
For those who are new to the idea, GGJ is an international game
(computer and board) development festival. For 48 hours (Friday 5pm
to Sunday 5pm) people gather and develop games following a theme
announced at the start.
Almost anyone can take part (at Waikato we have an age limit of 16 or
over). If you can program, design, develop artwork, have game ideas,
or can game test, or would just like to watch, come and participate.
To find out more about this year's event at Waikato and to register go
The entry fee at Waikato is $25 - for that you get a t-shirt and meals
for the weekend. You can come with friends or come alone and join a
team formed at the event.
So, if you would like ...

(from 1pm) please reply to this email.
2. ... to take part at the Waikato Site for Global Game Jam 2016,

3. ... to know more about GGJ and see games developed in previous
years, visit the global site at www.globalgamejam.org
