One hundred virtual game developers, educators, writers, musicians and artists will flock to Olin College tomorrow for the first-ever Game Jam to benefit the non-profit organization One Laptop Per Child.
Game developers will work for three days to create educational games, which will be distributed to children in developing nations.
After the conference, the games will be available on SourceForge.net, and open source software development website, so that folks at home can experiment. One Laptop Per Child, a Cambridge-based nonprofit, is working to upgrade worldwide educational standards in part by distributing low-cost laptops to children around the world.
