Hundreds of computers, Coke, virtual reality glasses, game development workshops, average age under 18. Launched on Friday 2 May in the afternoon, the GAME JAM LAN in the Millennium Pavilion can be overwhelming for a first-timer. But the participants have been to LAN parties before, so they know the routine: book a place, be there, play, learn, share experiences.
The first technological marvel greeting visitors to the Millennium Pavilion is the entrance itself. Constructed of Finnish wood, its design was made possible only by latest technology.
“Professor Millennium’s laboratory blew up,” the man in a blue cap says on the podium. “Your job is to find the technologies he invented.”
