Solar Game (Boy) Jam

As part of the Milieux Solar Media Project and in collaboration with TAG, Michael Iantorno and Alex Custodio are organizing a series of workshops this summer, culminating in a day-long Solar Game Boy Game Jam on August 26. The most up-to-date details can be found on the Solar Media website:

All participants are welcome, no matter your level of experience with circuits, hardware hacking, or game design! To offer the tools to experiment with prototyping, we’ll be hosting three workshops throughout the summer in advance of the Game Jam.

While participation at the Game Jam is not contingent upon attending the workshops, we strongly encourage these short sessions for folks who have not previously experimented with GB Studio and/or Game Boy game development.

Key Dates

  • July 11: GB Studio Tutorial + Makey Makey Basics
  • July 25: Game Boy Hardware Hacking
  • August 15: Let’s Make a Solar Powered Game Boy
  • August 26: Solar Game (Boy) Jam

Registration and other details

All events are open to TAG, Milieux, and Solar Media Collective members.
