Saturday September 30, 2017
8:00 AM to 10:30 PM - Free. Day 2 of Indie Galactic Space Jam. The DAVE School (2500 Universal Studios Plaza, Soundstage #25, Orlando, Florida). What is Indie Galactic Space Jam?
 1. It's an annual space-themed game jam hosted by Indienomicon, Orlando's independent game development association.
2. It's a collaborative event that's great for creatives of all sorts. Artists, animators, developers, writers, designers, and others are all welcome to participate.
3. It's a good way to flex your game-making skills, find new people to work with, and learn how to rapid- prototype a game idea.
This will be the 4th Indie Galactic Space Jam. This year they’re providing additional fun challenges, better resources, and greater opportunity for talent exposure. They also plan to kick things off with an amazing crop of speakers from both the space and video game industries. This is your chance to build something extraordinary with talented peers from all over Central Florida. Become part of a team or stay a lone (space) wolf charting a course to fun and excitement.
 Everyone is welcome to participate throughout the 48-hour Jam. They’re looking for artists, programmers, game designers, UI and UX designers, sound designers, writers, poets, interpretive dancers, people excited about games, people excited about space, people who like to eat pizza, and people like you. Register today and get ready to jam!
