Crawford International School is proud to announce the upcoming 2nd annual student Game Jam this month from Thursday 26th to Saturday 29th. It is an empowering e-gaming event that brings together students between the ages of 12 to 18 in groups of 2 to 4 to make a video game from scratch based on a theme that will be unveiled two days before the competition.
The top three achievers will be awarded cash prizes, 1st place securing Ksh 100,000, 2nd place Ksh 60,000, and 3rd place Ksh 30,000. Gaming students from all corners of the country are encouraged to register and connect with like-minded enthusiasts.
‘‘Game Jam emphasizes the importance of rapid prototyping and iteration. Participants learn how to quickly build and test game ideas, refine them based on feedback, and make necessary adjustments. This iterative process is valuable in game development and many other fields,’’ said Jyotkanwal Singh Bhambra, Game Jam Project Manager. co.

‘‘Completing a game jam project provides students with a tangible product for their portfolios. This can be especially beneficial for those pursuing careers in game development, programming, art, or design, as it showcases their skills and demonstrates their ability to work on real projects,” concluded Jyotkanwal.
