This year’s first in-house Game Jam will be held September 27-29 in Enarson Classroom Building room 222, starting Friday at 6 pm and ending Sunday at 5 pm. Game jams are weekend long events in which you or a team make an entire game in 48 hours. While this may seem like a difficult feat if you are new to game development, game jams are the perfect place to learn! Everyone is welcome to participate in the game jam, regardless of experience or involvement with the club. You do not have to attend the entire game jam, and you are welcome to participate in whatever way you can.
We look forward to seeing what everyone creates!
This week we’ll be meeting again in Campbell Hall 309 from 7 to 8:30 pm for a Unity tutorial. We’ll be going over the basics of using Unity to make a 3D game. No previous experience is required, though we hope you’ll be able to learn something even if you’re a Unity expert.
If you want to follow along, you can bring your laptop. Please install Unity ahead of time. If you install Unity Hub, make sure you also install the latest version of Unity Editor. This can be done through the ‘installs’ section in Unity Hub.
GCC will be showcasing a variety of game development tools during tonight’s meeting. In addition, we will also be announcing details for our first game jam of the semester!
See you all there!

Hello! We’ve created a Google Drive to put Unity project files from each weeks meetings. If you were unable to attend a meeting, or just want to revisit a certain topic, you can download the project and open it in Unity. We currently have the files from the previous 2 weeks tutorials, focused on 3D and 2D physics in unity.
Our first meeting is tomorrow, September 12th from 7:00p-8:30p in Enarson 222. We are going to be introduce everyone to the club as well as covering some of the basics of Unity. We highly recommend coming to the meeting with Unity already installed.
Looking forward to seeing you all!
