WHAT IS CHILLENNIUM?
Chillennium is the largest student-run game jam in the world, organized by students, for students. Hosted annually by the Department of Visualization, Chillennium is founded, staffed, and organized by students of Texas A&M University. This unique event brings participants from around the globe to meet fellow game enthusiasts, develop their skills, and compete for prizes. Those who participate can compete alone or as a team of up to 4 and will have 48 hours to plan, design, and develop a video game from scratch based on a theme! During the jam, mentors from the game industry will be walking the floors helping participants develop their ideas into amazing games. At the end of the 48 hours, the games will be played and judged by a panel of experts from the game industry and winners will be awarded prizes! No previous knowledge about games is needed, just a passion for creation!
