Hello again, jammers! We’ve been hibernating since the amazing time we had at PROCJAM 2016, but now it’s time to emerge into the summer sun and let you know what we have planned for this year. We have lots of exciting plans for this year’s jam, and they start today with the launch of our Kickstarter!
If we reach our target this Kickstarter will let us pay for our art packs, another issue of Seeds, more video coverage of the jam, and a brand new initiative for 2017: brand new tutorials written by members of the generative community. And the best bit is that by supporting us you can get an exclusive collection of procedural generation things from amazing ex-PROCJAM speakers and participants!
In past years we’ve been very lucky to have support from university funding, and we’ve got our fingers crossed that this will continue, of course! We’re so grateful to have these resources, but we’re also looking ahead to the jam’s long-term survival, and we want to keep PROCJAM independent and sustainable. So this year we’re running a little Kickstarter experiment to see if the community can help fund the jam’s outreach activities and keep growing our collection of tools and resources.
Please consider backing if you can, but more importantly please spread the word to anyone you know who’s into procedural generation! We have awesome plans for the funding this year, but more importantly it would be a great sign for the future of the event.
Regardless of what happens, stay tuned for more information about PROCJAM 2017. We’re super excited to see what you’re all going to make!
