XR Central, in collaboration with NorthCap University, is launching an international Game Jam in support of the gaming community and game developers everywhere. The game jam will last for 48 hours, from May 6th 2022 to May 8th 2022, and participants will be tasked with making a 2D or 3D game from scratch. Game creators can make games for any platform they want and choose whatever kind of game they want to build. This will be an invaluable opportunity for budding developers to learn on the ground and begin a journey of innovation in XR.
Workshops by industry experts will provide a guiding hand, and there will be many interactive activities planned along the way. The game jam will be livestreamed on the official NorthCap University YouTube channel, and gamers will have a chance to win prizes worth INR 1,00,000, sponsored by XR Central.
Nisha Arya, professor at NorthCap, says, “We are excited to collaborate with XR Central to develop the next generation of game developers at NorthCap University.”
Shrey Mishra, co-founder, XR Central, says, “While commercial video games can take years to create, Meta game jam will challenge you to improve your skills, meet new people and make something weird and wonderful in a 48 hour duration. The aim of the event is to create a community of like-minded game developers, designers and artists in a room together and create some interesting ideas, rather than attempting to make a blockbuster game in two days and yes there is a prize pool as well.”
