Code Liberation in collaboration with GAMERella is inviting women, first-time jammers, and gender non conforming game makers, as well as anyone who feels they haven’t had a chance to make a (video or board) game in a city ruled by industry giants, to a game jam at the NYU Game Center.

GAMERella was conceived to prove that game jams are the safest, most exciting environments in which to create games. Nothing is wrong; everyone is experimenting; no one is an expert. It is a place to improve skills, try out risky and unconventional design ideas, meet other developers, but above all, have fun.

Code Liberation, in collaboration with TAG welcomes everyone, not just women, to join them in November at the NYU Game Center to change the scene of indie game-making.

In case you’re not familiar with what a game jam is, it’s an event where people gather together to make games (video games, board games, anything!) within a (usually) short time frame. Game jams are super fun, whether you’re just starting to make games or are a seasoned professional.
