The MHC CS department is hosting a 24 hour coding extravaganza where talented students will team up to create the best interactive game they can muster.

This pilot event will give MHC students the chance to experience the video game production pipeline from pitching to developing a finished game, all in less than 24 hours! We are fortunate enough to have involvement from local game company HitPoint Studios (the largest independently owned game company in Massachusetts) -- games created at the GameJam may even be displayed at the company's upcoming Open House.

We will provide free (FREE) tshirts and pizza. You will provide your ingenuity and enthusiasm for sweet games!

you could be involved in IHart and make your own interactive display!
