Quo Vadis Game Jam

Register on our Eventbrite!

— What is a game jam? —

According to Wikipedia, a game jam is a gathering of people for the purpose of planning, designing, and creating one or more games within a short span of time, usually ranging between 24 and 72 hours. Participants are generally made up of programmers, game designers, artists, writers, and others in game development-related fields. It’s like a hack-a-thon but just for games.

— What is Quo Vadis? —

Quo Vadis is a Latin phrase that means “Where will you go?” and it’s the name of the student organization at the University of Pittsburgh that gives tours of the Cathedral of Learning Nationality Rooms.

This is a jam specifically themed around creating games based on our nationality rooms, and one primarily meant for Pitt Students and other University students in the Pittsburgh area. Non-students are welcome to participate remotely, but we cannot welcome the public to the on-campus event.

— Theme & Constraints —

The jam is themed around the Pitt Nationality Rooms; all registered teams will be assigned a nationality room on the first day of the event and have two weeks to create a game, digital or analog, that explores that space. Ideally, these games should explore the culture of that nation in the time period the room is depicting, pulling from iconography present in the room.

Non-Pitt-Students who are participating remotely may choose a room to focus on, on their own. Check out the wikipedia page or official website for details and photos.

— Rules —

Note: Partly adapted from Major League Hacking and Games4Health.

  • Teams may be 1-5 members. We encourage multi-disciplinary teams, so try to make a friend from another field!
  • Given that these games will deal with the history and culture of a given nation, please be respectful of that history and culture. We will not tolerate hate!
  • Be respectful. Harassment and abuse will not be tolerated.
  • Be nice. Yes, that’s a rule. The University of Pittsburgh embraces diversity and inclusion. We believe that every single person has the right to work and learn (and in this case develop games) in a safe and welcoming environment.
  • Do not harass anyone!
  • Harassment can include but is not limited to offensive verbal or written comments related to gender, gender identity, age, sexual orientation, disability, physical appearance, body size, race, religion, sexual images in public spaces, deliberate intimidation, stalking, following, harassing photography or recording, sustained disruption of talks or other events, inappropriate physical contact, and unwelcome sexual attention.
  • If what you’re doing is making someone feel uncomfortable, that may be harassment and is reason enough to stop doing it.
  • Participants asked to stop any harassing behavior are expected to comply immediately.
  • Sponsors, participants, judges, mentors, volunteers, organizers, University staff and anyone else at the event are also subject to University policies. In particular, attendees should not use sexualized images, activities, or other material both in their games and during the event.
  • Individuals attending and participating in the Game Jam are encouraged to immediately report any allegations of harassment or discrimination to the Office of Diversity and Inclusion https://www.diversity.pitt.edu/people.
  • Intellectual property (IP) laws still apply! We cannot stress enough that no team/individual participant of Quo Vadis Game Jam will illegally exploit others’ IP.
  • The overall ideas, design, game mechanics, etc… have to be original and have to be created by YOUR team.
  • If your game includes code, designs, images, assets developed by someone else, you have to ensure that you either have permission to use those assets (for example, assets available under open-source licenses or purchased / downloaded from Unity Asset Store)
  • For any assets not created by you, you must document where those assets came from – you can use comments in your code to cite your assets’ sources

All participants agree that their participation in the Quo Vadis Game Jam will hold no one liable for any loss or damage.

— Why a slow jam? —

This jam is a ‘slow jam’, meaning it has a slower pace than a typical game jam or hackathon. This is specifically so that it can fit into students’ schedules. Though we hope our participants use the extra time well, we are not expecting them to work at the same non-stop pace they would at a 24 or 48-hour game jam. Please get some sleep.

Again, non-students are welcome to participate remotely, but we cannot welcome the public to the on-campus event.

  17. U. S. gross domestic product shrank 1. 4% in the earliest quarter at the same time inflation ongoing to soar. For aged Americans, that combination invokes memories of 1970s stagflation, a nightmarish combination of double-digit inflation, double-digit interest rates, rising gasoline prices and frequently high unemployment. The entire budgetary mess got dumped in relation to President Jimmy Carter’s -panel after the 1976 election, although it was neither his negligence nor the fault of his or her predecessors, Gerald Ford and Richard Nixon.

    Sometimes, world-wide economic forces converge just like weather systems to create a outstanding storm, and woe towards president who gets shot in it. The timing inside current storm couldn’t become worse for President Girl Biden as he makes an attempt to minimize the damage Democrats are usually bracing for in this year’s midterm elections. Republicans to expect to rub Biden’s nasal area in bad economic data, though voters would be wise to study up on the facts rather than have political spin.

    Biden learned an economy still within pandemic shutdown mode. Providers abroad, like here, encountered sent workers home besides curtailed production to halt the actual spread of the coronavirus. Client spending plummeted. Manufacturers sold off inventories to meet which ever demand there was. Fuel prices had plummeted because masters also were staying family.

    Suddenly, vaccines allowed Tourists to return to work, the paths and the stores just as May well biden was settling into the Whitened House. A surge in demand to acquire everything crashed against the production and cargo-transportation logjam. Americans returned to their vehicles just as domestic and foreign oil producers opted that you can restrict output. Pump costs skyrocketed.

    Thus, inflation.

    The particular decline in gross family product – in razor-sharp contrast to the 6. 9% increase in the first quarter associated with 2021 – reflects any decline in car income because carmakers still cannot get the raw materials and microchips they need. Manufacturers, having lowered their inventories, now are struggling to meet consumer requirement. So , their sales tend to be dropping.

    Thus, stagnation.

    Presidents Nixon, Ford and Carter grappled for years with the mixture of a global economic contraction, a couple of punishing Middle East acrylic embargoes, tens of thousands of troops going back from Vietnam and the inadequate number of jobs to employ them. Joe biden, just like Carter and Nixon, also faced significant open public blowback from military debacles abroad: Nixon’s messy Vietnam pullout, Carter’s failed wager to rescue American hostages in Iran and Biden’s botched Afghanistan withdrawal.

    There’s no easy way for presidents to spin bad financial news other than to make clear that there is a bright side – such as Biden’s reminder Thurs. that unemployment rates have not been this low since 70 – and to remind the population that presidents in free-market economies have minimal features to halt inflation or drive economic growth. But some type of one-term presidency and midterm pain awaits any head who tries to shrug from these factors or disregard the strains faced by United states consumers (and voters).
