Making Games for Charity: Holiday Game Jam
Gamers, what are you doing this holiday season? If you’re free this Friday, you might want to high-tail it down to the Holiday Game Jam Event site, launched by L.A. based indie games space Glitch City.
Organized by Teddy Diefenbach (of Hyper Light Drifter) and Archie Prakash (of Asteroid Soccer 2014), the Holiday Game Jam event will celebrate game creation and invites game developers from all over the world to create games that celebrate the holiday spirit. As the Jam’s guidelines state: “Spread cheer and love during the holidays. We want games of a positive nature. Gore, hate, and sarcasm need not apply. But if you want to make a Die Hard game, that’s cool.”
Each day on the Holiday Game Jam site, a new door of the holiday calendar will unlock to reveal an in-progress game. Then, on December 23rd, the games will be put on sale for charity for Pay-What-You-Want to raise money for the Child’s Play Foundation.
Pre-orders are available now on the site through the Humble Store. The event is already underway so go to Holiday Game Jam’s official site to donate or for more information.
