Immigration Jam

by Darren Torpey on July 21st, 2010

Immigration Jam was held on August 21st and 22nd, 2010 at the Singapore/MIT GAMBIT Game Lab and hosted by Alex Schwartz and Darren Torpey.

So what is a game jam, anyway?

A game jam is a super-short-time-period event where participants get together to create games from start to finish.
