The local Boston Indie game community will be hosting a game jam this August on the theme is "immigration." It'll be held at the Singapore-MIT GAMBIT Game Lab on the 21st and 22nd of August.
This game jam will have a bit of a twist: Yilmaz Kiymaz, WPI alum and great contributor to the Boston indie game scene, is currently back in Turkey and trying to figure out how to get back to Boston. This game jam is to help raise awareness of kinds of issues and roadblocks he'll have to deal with, and possibly to get some support under him for the (likely expensive) process. Check out the blog post by Alex Schwartz and Darren Torpey, hosts of the game jam, on the Boston Game Jams blog for more details and forthcoming RSVP information!
