YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio (WKBN) – Youngstown Game Developers are hosting their second annual game jam this weekend.
A game jam is an event where people come together to create a themed video game in 48 hours.
This year, to go along with April Fools Day, the theme will be “deception.”
Gamers will also get a chance to spend the night at the McDonough Museum of Art while they create a working video game prototype.
“They basically create art assets, music assets, and programming assets and then they magically put those all together to make a game that you can sit with a control or a keyboard and mouse, and play,” said organizer Kendra Corpier.
The gamers have until 3 p.m. Sunday to finish their prototypes.
