Game Jams and hackathons are a great way of learning new things and socializing with other people. Recently GitHub started game jam "GameOff" which last month.
With two other guys, we are going to make a game. This year theme is "bug". As the description explains, it can be everything related to this word: animal, river (like this in Poland and Slovakia) or abbreviation.
We went straightforward, and our game will be about mech soldier fighting with bugs to save Christmas. We are going to use Unity for the game with a 3D view.
You can expect progress posts on DEV.to ;)
