ICAD/Visionlab promotes Global Game Jam 2020 at PUC-Rio

The Global Game Jam is an annual distributed game jam when participants gather to develop ideas, form small groups, create new, creative, innovative games, and present them to their peers and the global community, all in a limited time span of 48 hours.

Since 2016, ICAD/Visionlab promotes a jam site at PUC-Rio to offer the opportunity for students to participate in the event. This year we made a movie to document the event.

The documentary is available at youtube (in portuguese language)
