Newbies and Vets
Game Jam 2021

Our annual game jam targeted at newbies who want to take their first dive into game development!

What's Newbies and Vets?

Newbies and Vets Game Jam is an annual event run by MEGA in the fall semester on a single weekend. It is targeted towards people with little to no game development experience, especially those who want to get their hands dirty creating games in a team of like-minded. We have volunteer veterans, who are seasoned game development students, help guide newbies through making a small game. At its core, the event is about having fun, making new friends and learning!
