  5. Please let me know if you are interested:

    This is a summer paid internship position.

    The intern will be the main Unity developer for an educational program that is being designed. Unity dev skills with C# coding skills are both required. 2D dev experience, mobile development experience, and HTML5 experience would be great, but is not required.

    The project will be a mobile and desktop game, built in a 2D environment.

  6. Due to the lack of registrations, the 2017 Global Game Jam @ KSU will not be held at KSU this year :'-(.

    You are still encouraged to jam over the GGJ weekend, there are several sites available in Atlanta.

  8. So you're a student with limited funds, your University can't send you, or you just want to lend a hand. Whatever the reason, you may still be able to attend this premiere event by becoming a Conference Associate. Are you willing to earn your attendance (and a little extra money) by doing about 25 hours of on-site work? Apply to be a Conference Associate (CA)!
