Each year the IAM department hosts a game jam that culminates on Manifest. Students form small teams (max 5 people) to build a game collaboratively.
This year students will have an expanded timeline so that they can participate in Industry Night without losing time to work on their Game Jam game; the game concept and theme will be revealed 72 hours before the deadline.
Teams will have until 1:45 pm the day of Manifest to complete their game.
