Sometimes it is a good idea to layout a rough plan of development; so thats exactly what we did for the PTBO Game Jam 04. While it's not perfect and exact, much like the development process, it's dynamic but has the broad strokes.

The Clock Starts

The 32-hour timer begins, the livestream gets going on Twitch and we are off to the races. Let the pressure begin and the temperature rise as the laptop powering the stream starts running at 99% usage for the next 32 hours. Will it hold? Nobody knows!

Putt For SWAG!

The awesome folks at Unity have been providing jammers with awesome SWAG across all of our events. This time they sent some especially nice things to give out. Naturally, we gamified that process. Jammer's will be able to face a mini putt challenge with a twist to win prizes (while supplies last!).

Who remembers that fun pizza order we did late into the night at 03? The community spoke, and we worked tirelessly to make it happen. We proudly announce the return of Pizza-For-Jammers. A special thank you to all of our sponsors AND the awesome team at Aramark for making this happen. We're going with the standard fair of topping selections. We will not guarantee any dietary concerns revolving around them; we will try to get a few vegetarian pizzas.
