There will be no Friday Games today because of the Global Game Jam, which begins at 5pm and runs all weekend here at the lab. However, even if you are not participating in the GGJ (which requires pre-registration), you are welcome to come to the kick-off.
The Global Game Jam is a worldwide event where groups of people get together and make games in a single weekend. The games are usually very bizarre and experimental because of the short time frame. Also, not everyone who participates is a professional game maker. It's an event that welcomes all sorts of people.
Things begin at the normal Friday Games time, at 4pm, when we'll have last years GGJ games available to play in the lounge. So if you'd like to see what all the fuss is about, be sure to drop by!
