It’s time to (game) jam with FIRST and WPI!
While you might be used to making robots that play games in FIRST, now we are going to make a game to play robots!
What is a Game Jam?
Game Jams, like hackathons, are when teams gather together to develop a prototype video game around a certain theme or prompt. Teams often consist of people interested in learning programming, designing, creating art, writing, and performing music and sound. No experience is necessary to get involved!
Join the inaugural FIRST Game Jam!
The goal of this Game Jam is to celebrate FIRST and its vision and mission by having current, past, and prospective FIRST participants create a video game concept. Teams can be collaborative, no need to limit your team to existing teammates or programs… you don’t even need to limit yourself to one team.
Team registration will open soon along with the Game Jam discord to help you meet others who are participating, find a team to join, or recruit team members.
The Game Jam will take place November 7th through November 15th.
