NASA will be hosting and providing assistance for a game jam this weekend in California. Here’s more from the Polygon.com article linked above:
NASA will host a game jam from March 8-10 during which developers can work alongside the space agency to make games about space and science, according to the official Dark Side of the Jam website.
The agency will encourage developers to make games that “capture the public’s interest in the real science and technology advancements being made in aerospace exploration.” NASA will provide photos, models, audio and animation assets for developers to use, which range from panoramic photos of the moon to textured models of spacesuits.
