And now, it’s time to formally announce the sponsors of the Melbourne site of the Global Game Jam, 2011!
The Melbourne Global Game Jam 2011 is proudly brought to you by:
- La Trobe University, Bundoora: La Trobe University are providing us with pretty much the perfect venue to hold a Game Jam! We’ll be situated in their IT Labs, with ready access to PC’s, Network and internet access. It’s fair to say that without such a venue, it would be very hard to put together an event like this.
- Stephan Schutze: Stephan is the creator of Sound Library (http://www NULL.stephanschutze NULL.com/), an online collection of over 17,000 high quality sounds that can be used for nearly any purpose. Stephan is bringing the entire library with him to the jam, and will be on-site for the majority of the weekend to help participants make best use of this powerful audio resource in their games.
- Firemint: Firemint have generously offered to help fund the Game Jam, greatly allowing us to provide food and snacks to the jammers with the minimum of disruption to what will be a frantically-paced weekend.
