Clickjam 2012

Clickjam!

Hopefully this is the right spot to post this if not please slap me on the wrist and send me on my way. We at Clickteam are holding a event this August 18th at several locations world wide, a Game Jam we are calling Clickjam. Basically a create a game within 24 hours affair with the additional caveat you need to use our tool Multimedia Fusion 2. To that end anyone attending gets a free copy of the tool to keep. (A $120.00 U.S. Value). Multimedia Fusion 2 is not just for programmers but for anyone who has aspirations to develop games, the basics of the tool can be taught in under a hour. It uses plain language to program in what we call our event editor. More information on the event can be found here...

I'm in Baltimore. It's tempting to go. Problem is, I'm just an artist/game designer with lofty aspirations. You sure it's easy to learn?

I have personally taught the tool to middle grade school students in about a hour and I use it professionally, SO yes I wholeheartedly believe it is the easiest most flexible tool on the market. So swing by and give it a shot, it's free so you just risking time to go!

Visit our forums for more details and to let us know you might attend...

This is my background too, minimal programming knowledge and I developed the original version of Pocket Ninjas in less than 3 weeks. Can be a very powerful tool once you really get into it, but it also straight forward enough to pick up and run with

Cool beans. I've played pocket ninjas before and was surprised that a game like that was developed using this software. Still I'll probably want to spend some time with it before the Jam.
