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!

Our annual Newbies and Vets Game Jam this year was a record-breaking success! Taking place both in-person and via Zoom/Discord, this jam brought together students far and wide. and from myriad different backgrounds, all unified by their love for games. In just 49 hours (Nov. 5 - Nov. 7), and with over a hundred participants, we were able to witness the creation of 16 stunning entries. See them below!
