Peter Molydeux Game Jam Adds Even More Locations, Begins Tomorrow

What would Molydeux? We're about to find out.

The hour is nearly upon us—Molyjam 2012 begins tomorrow. Molyjam 2012 is, of course, the game-design jam based on the wacky ideas of Peter Molydeux, the twitter evil-twin of famed game developer (and real human) Peter Molyneux.

I've already shared which of his ideas I think would make for fun game prototypes, but starting tomorrow and going through to Sunday, it'll be time to see what everyone else thinks. Each jam will likely have its own schedule, but the San Franciscio/East Bay jams will begin on the evening of Friday, March 30th through Sunday, April 1st.

Even since last week, the event has added more locations; the number is currently at 28. 28 different locations! Contact information for each location can be found hat whatwouldmolydeux.com, but as of this post, the locations include:

  • San Francisco
  • NYC
  • Seattle
  • Boston
  • Los Angeles
  • Orlando
  • Las Vegas
  • Phoenix
  • Austin
  • Lexington
  • Malmo, Sweden
  • Dieburg, Germany
  • Rio de Janeiro, Brazil
  • Melbourne, Australia
  • Brighton, UK
  • London, UK
  • Montreal, Canada
  • Sydney, Australia
  • Munich, Germany
  • Lisbon, Portugal
  • Toronto, Canada
  • Dundee, Scotland
  • Monterrey, Mexico
  • Tel Aviv, Israel
  • Christchurch, New Zealand
  • Helsinki, Finland
  • Guadalajara, Mexico

It sounds as though they're running out of space at a lot of the events; The San Francisco space is full, with people setting up ad-hoc team meetings around it so that they can participate. So, if you're a creative or game develop-y type in one of those areas, or you'd simply like to get with some friends and participate remotely, you can get in touch with organizers via the main page and keep up with Molyjam news via the news page.

I'll be keeping tabs on the San Francisco event this weekend, and will report back with tales of the weird, the wacky, and hopefully the truly inspired games that people come up with.
