We’re very pleased to announce a $1,000 prize (courtesy of Wall, Einhorn, and Chernitzer, P.C.) will be awarded to one Game Jam team that also pitches at the Dev Con. As many of you know we have shifted this year’s Game Jam back to April 5-7. Developers who just want to make a game are welcome to enter, hangout, meet new people, and of course just make a fun game during that event with no pressure via the single Game Jam pass.
