A Different Kind of Game Jam

While we’ve already talked about what Ludum Dare is, here is an interesting look at another kind of game jam: the Train Jam, which is a 52 hour jam that takes place on a train between Chicago and San Francisco right before the Game Developers Conference, which happens to be this week. Not only does the Train Jam serve as a fun challenge for game developers, it also serves as a way to network and get to know fellow developers in the industry. The Train Jam has run for only two years so far, the second being just this last week.
