Ludum Dare 44 Game Jam!
April 26 - April 28Free
New Media Manitoba & Interactive Indie present Ludum Dare 44 Game Jam!
Join us for Ludum Dare 44 and collaborate with devs, designers, musicians, and others to challenge yourself to create new and exciting games, interactive experiences and everything in between!
These weekends are a great starting point for people looking to get into game development and an incredible chance to collaborate. No matter your experience, if you love games, can self direct your work, and have a positive attitude a “Jam” is a perfect place to showcase your talents.
The word is definitely out on how much fun these jams are because we set a record for attendance at our last one so make sure you register soon.
To help kick-off things off we have original Winnitron bad boy Marlon Wiebe coming in to share a presentation on his work for Brace Yourself Games. Marlon is currently busting out trailers and has worked on the cinematics for titles such as Crypt of the Necrodancer and Industries of Titan, Darkest Dungeon, Into the Breach, Lovers in a Dangerous Spacetime and many more.
Marlon will be sharing his wealth of experience in the games industry and highlighting some of his current work

Game jams are a great opportunity to learn about our local industry and meet people from the community to collaborate and build video games over the course of a weekend. Work in a space full of programmers, artists, musicians and more to rapidly develop a working video game in a supportive environment. If you’ve ever been curious about what it takes to make a game this is your chance!
