Fukushima Game Jam Challenges Young Game Creators
September 1, 2011
UEI was proud to sponsor Fukushima Game Jam, and two-day event that took place simultaneously in Fukushima, Tokyo, and Fukuoka. The participants? High school and college-age game creators. Their mission? To split into teams of two and create a complete game in 30 hours. The goal? To promote a theme of “connection” with victims of the tragedy in Fukushima.
But why tell you when I can show you? Here’s a video of the event as it unfolded at the NII satellite campus in Tokyo:
