Cecil Con’s First 24 Hour Game Jam!

What is the Cecil Con Game Jam?

24 Hours to Create a Playable Game From Start to Finish

A game jam is a competition in the art of game design. Teams are tasked to create a game in 24 hours. In a competition like this, the participants are skilled in programming, designing, writing, 2D/3D artistry, music, and other jobs.  The teams create alpha/prototype games within the given time span. Teams have 24 hours to conceive, develop and produce a final product..

The game jam is a high-octane competition enhancing creativity and imagination.. Competitions like this bring together skilled artists and developers to create some of the most fun and quick-witted games. The Game Jam is an exciting addition to Cecil Con 2019.

Ready. Set. Go!
