Coming together as a creative community under the direction of Terrasa Ulm, associate professor of game development, and Amanda Theinert, director of the MFA program, Becker College held a virtual Game Jam October 16-18. More than 80 students and alumni participated in the event, working in teams of one to four, for the collective goal of making fun, October-themed games with lots of original content. During this time of COVID seclusion, events such as the Jam allowed students to interact in ways that help develop a deeper level of collaboration and interaction. Each team did a game demo on Twitch: Becker Oct Jam Stream.

“The goals for Becker’s October game jam were to have a fun time, release some creative energy, and bring us together as a supportive community,” explained Ulm, who added, “Objectives achieved!”
