Game devs join forces for War Child charity game jam

Game devs join forces for War Child charity game jam

September 4, 2015 | By Alex Wawro




Creative Assembly, Bossa Studios, 343 Industries and other developers are planning to take part in a six-day game jam for charity, then sell the fruits of their labor in March of 2016 as a downloadable game omnibus (Help: Real War Is Not A Game) to raise money for the War Child non-profit.

For game developers, this is a nice opportunity to see compatriots apply their skills to a charitable cause. It's also interesting to see War Child representatives drawing clear parallels between the Help jam game album and the Help album (pictured) recorded in 1995 by Paul McCartney, Sinéad O'Connor, Radiohead and other music artists to support War Child's efforts.

This time around, participating studios will work in locations around the world to quickly make a game based on a brief provided by War Child. Unity, Gamemaker and Unreal are also providing their toolsets to participants at no cost, and with no royalty requirements.

For more details (including contact information, if you're interested in potentially participating) check out War Child's Help: Real War Is Not A Game website.
