The teams formed on site include collaboration among students from the Digital Design program in the School of Art + Design and IT students from the NJIT's College of Computing Sciences. During the past Game Jams Events (2011, 2012) student teams developed a number of exciting video games such as Seed.Genesis, LightCopter, Blasteroids, and Fireflies, just to name a few.

Energy and enthusiasm is enough to get started. The rest you can learn while jamming with us.
