First Official Adventure Jam!

8-1-2012 Posted by: RobotAdventure

Next week Monday through Wednesday, Adventure Club Games is holding an internal game jam and we need your help!

The goal of a game jam is to make a game from the ground up in a limited amount of time. And traditionally, to encourage brainstorming, a theme is chosen in the beginning. The theme can be taken any way the developers want be it literal or abstract. And that’s where you come in.

We need themes! And we want you to think of them!

Places, events, objects, colors, moods. Anything that could inspire and offer a basis for an interesting game. Anything from frying pans to confusion to the color orange. Give us any and all ideas. Just please, nothing obscene

So brainstorm and tweet, facebook, or comment below your themes for our game jam. We will release the final list by Monday. On Monday, we will announce the theme. Check in regularly to see how the game is coming along.

Thanks in Advance
