ADL Game Jam Hackathon
What is a Game Jam? A Game Jam is a hackathon for building video games. A group of game developers gather in a room, brainstorm ideas based on a chosen theme, and rapidly prototype video game designs. Participants are asked to create a game from beginning to end in a set amount of time (in our case, 24 hours). The set window of time encourages creative thinking and results in innovative and experimental games. he “Being an Ally” Game Jam is a collaboration between the Anti-Defamation League (ADL) and the Museum of Art and Digital Entertainment in Oakland, California. It will take place October 21st and 22nd from 7:00 PM Saturday to 7:00 PM on Sunday in locations across the US. A winning game will be announced and showcased at the ADL’s national conference on combatting hate, Never is Now, on November 13th in San Francisco. The winning team will be invited to attend and will receive a Nintendo Switch or SNES Mini. Additional selected games created at the Game Jam will be made available for use by ADL’s network of 27 regional offices in the United States.
