Game Jams

It’s the return of the panel style episode! We’ve been doing a lot of interviews lately, so I thought it would be nice to invite back Davain and Andrew to talk about Game Jams.

There was an article doing around a while ago asking, are game jams worth it? The panel thinks so, and shares their stories of jams gone right and jams gone wrong.

If you’re interest, I am also hosting my own game jam in San Francisco on September 12th, 13th and 14th.  It’s called Alpha Game Jam, you should join us!
