= FMV videogame brain melts!
Applications are now closed.
No Jam 2 will give participants a quick-and-dirty introduction to DIY game-making by throwing them into the frenzied, extremely time-limited format of a game jam. Participants will collaborate with one other artist in a different discipline to produce a small FMV multi-screen game.
We are interested in seeing how FMV (full-motion video) multi-screen game tools (developed for the feminist art game PsXXYborg) enhance your game-making, and how the game jam format works for artists working in different media. This is a collaborative research project that will explore experimental game development practices.
No game-making experience or skills required! Our workshops will get you up to speed with all the software you need for the jam, and we'll have technical support on hand throughout the weekend. All you have to do is create.
If you have one, yes! If not, no problem—we have Mac and PC laptops available to use on site.
No Jam 2 is an inclusive and explicitly feminist space. You do not have to be a DMG member or identify as a woman to apply and participate.
Applications closed October 28.
