What is this GameJam about?
GameJam 2008 is a competition where groups of developers try to implement in a short time, within less than 2 days, a game aimed to kids from 6 to 14 years old, to be used in a educational context. At the end of the competition there will be an evaluation comitee, established with children and by the Professor Léa Fagundes. They will elect the best development project based in the fun level of the application.
GameJam's goal is to arouse interest in developing games to the XO OLPC laptop platform, in such way that the number of developers for this platform can grow and new applications to support the project's purpose may arise to be developed.
Everybody is invited to apply to the GameJam 2008 and contribute to the community's growing engaging in research and development of this project, whose proposal is to revolutionize education in developing countries, by offering a low-cost tool to be used in the process of teaching and learning and the process of digital inclusion.
By using this tool, we aim to offer easier access to learners of the digital world, in which they can find resources for learning, such as educational content and supporting tools for creation and collaboration.
Join this fight!
The proposed challenge is to develop, in less than 30 hours, an electronic game to XO starting from scratch and deploy the game in one XO laptop provided for each team. The game development must be done in conventional machines, in which should already be installed, by the teams, the XO operational system emulator, that emulates the same system present in the XO environment. Also, each team, will have total access to their XO during the competition to deploy and test their application in a real environment.
A equipe vencedora será premiada com um laptop XO B4, que será enviado posteriormente por correio, pela OLPC. Destaca-se que os vencedores provavelmente terão que aguardar alguns meses para o recebimento do prêmio.
A competição é destinada a qualquer grupo de pessoas que desejem desenvolver artefatos de software para a plataforma XO - o laptop da OLPC.
