The Academy of Interactive Entertainment (AIE) is holding its first-ever Game Jam at their Lafayette campus location.
Established in 1996, AIE is a non-profit educator that trains students in 3D animation, game development, and related fields. They provide the required training needed to join others such as entrepreneurs, leaders, and innovators in the video game and film industries. Additionally, AIE will be holding an Open House on November 16th from 10 AM to 2 PM for those who are interested in a career in the digital media industry.
For anyone new to a Game Jam, a Game Jam is an event where an individual or a group create a game in a limited amount of time using their imagination, skill, and a theme. Game Jams are great for meeting other developers or aspiring developers and building on your portfolio. AIE is hoping to bring together the local video game communities in Louisiana with their Game Jam.
The event will be located at the AIE Lafayette campus at 537 Cajundome Boulevard, #211, Lafayette, LA 70506.
