This weekend is the Global Game Jam at Microsoft NYC and my former colleague convinced me to join him and friends to be on a team. It's a great way to hold myself accountable to learn game development that I've mentioned in a previous post. I'm really excited to see how to plan it all: create the game, find assets, and work with new people. I have a feeling it'll be similar to my first hackathon, where they'll be some challenges, but it'll also some fun and overall a great time! I hope to meet a bunch of new people from all walks of life who have a similar goal, which is game design, development and awesome geekiness. Are you also participating? Reach out to me on Twitter!
