"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?
