Imagine all the time and hard work that goes into creating a gaming masterpiece. Now, imagine accomplishing it all in a mere 48 hours. That’s the huge task at hand for a group of video game lovers, as they take part in Global Game Jam 2011.
Hosted by the International Game Developers Association (IGDA), each year video-gamers from across the region come together to create an entire game within a short 2-day time span.
At the start of the challenge, participants are given a theme from which they can create a computer game, video game or board game of their choice. Once the theme is announced, the possibilities are endless.
According to the IGDA, this is a BYOT event, where attendees are urged to bring their own tools and technology to assist them in game development.
