The Spring 2017 Edition of the GameJam was scheduled for 2017 April 20–22.
The theme was "All about the lighting". We had about 23 participants on 10 teams.
Congratulations to the winning teams!

Similar to F2016, each team can have at most 2 programmers but any number of other members (designer of graphics, music, sound, storyboard, character, level, etc.). All Taylor students are invited, not just CSE students or programmers. Freshmen are encouraged to participate. Bringing friends is also welcomed. The competition has a $10/participant fee to help in covering cost of trophies, snacks, and drinks. An informational meeting was scheduled for Tuesday, April 11 at 6:00pm in Euler 218. Meal transfers for Friday and/or Saturday evenings are available until noon on Tuesday, April 18. After the noon Apr 18 deadline, meal transfers will not be available. A sign-up sheet is available in the CSE Department. Or, sign up electronically by sending an email to Lara Horsley (email) with your Taylor ID. If you email before April 18, specify which days your want meals transferred (Neither, Friday, Saturday, Both). Each participant must send an email from their own Taylor email account. In other words, you may not sign up other people. Note: Ludum Dare 38 is happening at roughly the same time (April 21–24). See link for more details. You are encouraged to participate in both if you choose. The theme for LDJam 38 is at this link.
