Fuck This Jam

Good morning, gamers!

Today marks the first day of the newest Jam I've discovered.  Provocatively named "Fuck This Jam" (wow, won't that be a great eye-catcher on the resume!) is about creating a game in the genre you like the least.  Personally, I really hate card games, but I guess it's not really a "video game" genre.  In that case, the runner-up for me would be those mindless Facebook clicking games.

Here is the introductory Keynote video for Fuck This Jam:

Welcome to Fuck This Jam!

"Fuck This Jam is a jam centered around the theme of making a game in a genre you hate. Through utter ignorance for conventions and hate for the established rules of a genre, beautiful things will happen. The jam lasts from Friday November 9th 18:00 until Saturday November 17th 18:00. "

If you're interested in forming and/or joining a team, or simply getting involved yourself, you can sign up here!  I'm not technically hosting a gathering for the Pittsburgh location, but you are welcome to come to my house to work!
