TIGJam 3

Hey, everyone! The dates for TIGJam 3 have been set. We be jammin’ over Halloween weekend, so feel free to dress up as your favorite Cave Story character (best costume wins a date with Jeff Lindsay). This year the jam will be held at the palatial Hacker Dojo in Mountain View, California… just a hop, skip, and double jump from San Francisco. Like previous years, the cover charge is $50 and goes into a secret slush fund that is used to bribe IGF judges and also feed and clothe you while you make cool stuff and enjoy the love of your fellow indie developers.

For more information, keep an eye on the TIGJam forum.

Sometimes it’s hard being European. There’s Japan to the East, obscured in a haze of gigantic robots, explosions and awesome flu mask fashion accessories. To the west lie the expanses of America, presided over by the regal Derek Yu and guarded always by the mighty fists of David Whitlark. What do we have to show for ourselves? Countless failed empires, some french guy riding a bicycle with a baguette under his arm, and questionable musical adventures like Eurodance.

Well, Europe, your fortunes are about to change. It’s time to stand up and be counted. We give you…

This summer, from Friday, July 31st to Monday, August 3rd, an indie game jam will be taking place in the lovely city of Berlin, Germany. Cunningly titled the Berlin Indie Game Jam, it offers the opportunity to meet a bunch of awesome, like-minded people and work together with them on some cool games, as well as participate in a smattering of events such as 3-hour game development competitions.

We’ll be kicking back on the second floor of the lovely St. Oberholz café. The café not only guarantees a smooth atmosphere to jam and work in, but also offers an assortment of beverages and tasty foodstuffs to help you ward off death by starvation or thirst.

Tickets are limited, and cost 5 Euro each. More information about the jam and further discussion can be found here.
