We are excited to be working with Seattle indie game incubator HouseOgames to host this year's HOGJam, right here on Amazon's Seattle campus. Join us to build games, have fun, and hopefully meet some cool people. In addition to a great location, we have industry veterans from the Amazon to help you brainstorm ideas, offer technical support and mentorship during the HOGjam. This is also a great opportunity to get your hands on some of the latest devices and services we offer game developers such as the newly announced Fire Phone, Kindle Fire tablets and of course Fire TV.
The HOGjam starts on Saturday, August 23rd at 10am until 12am and reopens again on Sunday, August 24th from 10am to 6pm. The following will be providing during the event:
- Comfortable, creative environment for you to work on you game on your own or in teams
- Wifi (please pre-install everything you need in case it’s slow)
- Snacks and drinks
- Device bar for you to try out the latest Amazon hardware
- Mentors from Amazon
- A theme to inspire your game during the event
At the end of the GameJam, everyone gets to demo their games and get constructive feedback on how to turn their creation into a commercial product. The goal is for everyone to be creative and have a fun. There is no judging since making a game in less than 48 hours is hard enough! It’s also an excellent opportunity to show off your creativity to professionals in the gaming industry. Got a game you are working on or have published? We’d love to see that as well after the HOGJam,
Everyone is welcome from developers to designers and we fully encourage people to team up. We’ll provide full details on the rules of the HOGjam at the event so be prepared to come out with everything you need to make your game from scratch. We hope to see you there!
Saturday August 23rd: 10am – 12am
