Q: Do I need any Unity or programming experience to attend?
A: Nope! This jam is for people who are new to Unity. We just ask that you arrive ready to jam (see above).
Q: What are the system requirements to install Unity?
Q: How long is the jam?
A: We’ll be jamming for about 2-2.5 hours. Of course, you’re free to pop in and out. We’ll do our best to make sure it’s easy for people to just jump right back in with us!
Q: Will it be recorded/published?
A: Yes! The stream will be converted to a video once it ends, so you can review it at any time. If you missed it live, you can watch it at your convenience.
Q: What is a game jam?
A: This game jam is unique because it’s hosted online, it’s for beginners, we’re using a game template, it’s short, and we (pretty much) know what we’re going to show you. A “traditional” game jam is an in-person event where you would typically gather with more experienced programmers, game designers, artists, etc. to create a game or project from scratch within a time span averaging 24–72 hours.
