We at Clickteam are holding a event this August 18th at several locations world wide, a Game Jam we are calling Clickjam. Basically a create a game within 24 hours affair with the additional caveat you need to use our tool Multimedia Fusion 2. To that end anyone attending gets a free copy of the tool to keep. (A $120.00 U.S. Value). Multimedia Fusion 2 is not just for programmers but for anyone who has aspirations to develop games, the basics of the tool can be taught in under a hour. It uses plain language to program in what we call our event editor. More information on the event can be found here...
So in any case if you not doing anything on the 18th and you are near one of these locations might be worth you while to drop in, get a free copy of the tool and create something cool on your laptop, win a prize, you know the drill.
