Github Game Jam

Following the recent Adobe Game Jam, the folks at Github just announced their game jam! The cool part is that you don’t have to go to their headquarters to join the fun, you can work from home.

The game must be web-based (what includes Flash, Unity, HTML5, for instance) and loosely built around one or more of the following themes:

  • forking (or forks)
  • branching (or branches)
  • cloning (or clones)
  • pushing
  • pulling

The deadline is December the 1st. You have the whole month of November to work on your entry, which can be individual or as a team. Every participant will be awarded with an exclusive Coderwall badge; the game jam winners can get one of 5 shiny new iPads with Retina displays (64GB wifi models).

I love Github, but now I do even more with that game flavor! See the complete game jam announcement, rules and instructions here.
