trainjam.com

From website:

"Train Jam is a game jam that occurs on a train traveling from Chicago, IL to San Francisco, CA. Participants will have 52 hours to form teams, conceptualize an idea, and create a game - or stare out a window."

Devs on course to craft a game, while on a train! Imagine what games could come out of this train based experience! Imagine what train based interactions between these devs could occur. Maybe a great train robbery! Maybe a Agatha Christie-esque train murder! Maybe a whimsical adventure game about how the journey is more important than the destination!

Giantbomb is the only videogame news website with a dedicated Chicago correspondent and I imagine Patrick is coming to San Francisco for GDC anyway so why not go by game dev heavy train?

Sorry, yeah, that would be a pretty cool thing to have covered by Patrick.

This sounds like it could be pretty cool for Patrick to cover. I'd like to see me some train games.

@starvinggamer: I simultaneously loathe and adore that you've brought this video in to my life.

Wow, this seems kind of perfect for Patrick (though I'm not sure if he's as enthusiastic about trains as I am. I hope so)

Well actually it'll probably depend more on the organisers... but still!

Wow, this combines two of my favorite things. Trains and video games. It sounds pretty cool.
