The Fall 2013 Georgia Game Jam, an event hosted by Southern Polytechnic State University in Marietta, Georgia, will feature the theme "games for health." The organizers are encouraging participants to "think outside the box with exergaming, mobile/spatial games, and games that utilize geolocation data to create innovative experiences." Both digital games and board games can be developed as part of the event.
The Game Jam is scheduled for Sept. 20 to 22, 2013. Given the theme, I can't help but wonder if the organizers weren't at least somewhat inspired by the brilliant cooperative game Pandemic.
