Miniclip’s Jamie Cason is curating Game Jam at SBGames 2014 in Porto Alegre, Brazil from 12th to 14th November 2014.
SBGames, the Brazilian Symposium on Games and Digital Entertainment, is the largest and most important event for games in Latin America, attended by scientists, artists, designers, teachers and students from colleges, research centers and from the game industry. For the first time this year SBGames features Game Jam, where five teams, one from each region of Brazil, create new digital games in a set period of 48 hours around a given theme, competing for a cash prize. Game Jam is curated by Jamie Cason, Executive Producer (Publishing) at Miniclip.
Jamie brings extensive experience in game production to Game Jam. He is involved with setting the theme, as well as providing guidance to the participants as to what makes a successful casual game and overseeing their progress. Jamie will also partake in the evaluation of teams: the best game will be chosen based on criteria including innovation, game design, technology, graphics and sound.
