MAKE FUN. MAKE GAMES.
Playcrafting provides developers across the United States - from noobs to pros - with the tools required to get their games off the ground. This is done through approachable hands-on classes that lower the barrier for entry for anyone to get started making games and to empower pros to level up their skills. We host everything from local gatherings like Expos and Demo & Plays to industry-recognized annual events like Play NYC and the largest Global Game Jam site in the United States. A commitment to community and in-person support has helped elevate Playcrafting to now serve communities across 5 U.S. cities. The organization offers over 200 courses and events annually.
These games were created as part of "The Indie Game Jam, presented by Schick Hydro" in partnership with Playcrafting. This groundbreaking 48-hour, indie game jam took place in New York City from November 17-19. During the jam, 20 of the rising stars of independent game development created games based on the theme of Schick Hydro’s mission: to “protect and defend.”
Each of the following games will be showcased in a custom arcade – “The Indie Game Jam Arcade” – at the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles at The Game Awards 2017. You can download and play them now too!
