The MADE hosts its first Game Jam
Greetings MADE donors! The Museum of Art and Digital Entertainment has been rolling along, meeting even more goals during the month of March. We opened the month with big bang as we showed out History of 3D exhibit at the Game Developers Conference in San Francisco.
We got terrific exposure, and thousands of people streamed by the booth to play games ranging from Wolfenstien 3D and Ultima Underworld, to Microsoft Flight Simulator and Bioshock.
GDC took terrific care of us, and we were the only non-profit with a major display on-site. If we were a commercial company, we would have had to pay 6 figures for the exposure, advertising, space and logistical support we received at the show. All of this was donated to us.
This past weekend, the MADE took part in a world-wide Game Jam, titled "What Would Molydeux?" The Jam was a 48 hour development marathon, where teams built games based on the tweets of a faux-Peter Molyneux. The Game Jam site now hosts all the games made over the weekend: http://www.whatwouldmolydeux.com/
Teams at the MADE accounted for just over 10 games made this weekend. We're very proud of all our teams, and are considering doing something like this once a month.
To that end, we are still working on our Level 2 Fundraising goals. We are currently paid up through May 20, and require further funds to keep the space open beyond that point. To accomplish this, we're planning a 24-hour Game-play marathon at the end of April, during which we will beat at least 20 games and show a live-stream of the event. For every $1,000 over the goal amount of $20,000 we raise, we will beat an additional game. We're hoping ya'll can keep us playing for days on end.
