Vancouver’s hottest young video-game talents face off this weekend at Vancouver’s Global Game Jam 2012, part of a 48-hour, world-wide programming marathon.
Video-game developers, artists and sound engineers from local universities and colleges will race the clock to create playable, polished games. Scott Jones, host of Reviews on the Run and Electric Playground, and Blaine Kyllo of the Georgia Straight will help review the final products.
The weekend is a semi-competitive, soft drink- and pizza-fuelled celebration that closes with a grand presentation of crowd favourites and a professional review of the games.
With 150 participants, the UBC-hosted event is the largest of over 90 concurrent Global Game Jams being held worldwide. More than 80 of the participants are UBC students. This is the third year that Vancouver has participated in Global Game Jam.
