Anyone of any skill level is encouraged to participate. Game jams are a great way to make your first game at WPI, connect with the community, and immerse yourself in IMGD culture. If you’re already a seasoned pro, join in the antics and make another awesome piece for your portfolio!
Besides hosting our own game jams, WPI also collaborates with other organizations and colleges to join in on the fun. Every year, WPI participates in the Global Game Jam, a game jam that takes place at the same time all around the world. We also partner with FIRST Robotics for an annual one-of-a-kind, week-long, competitive game jam event: FIRST Game Jam! Participating students are tasked with making a game from scratch based on a theme that inspires innovation and collaboration, ultimately demonstrating the role that creative design plays in the real-world applications of science and engineering.
