BlazeJam 2012 Game Jam To Raise Funds For Colorado Wildfire Efforts
Cerulean Games, Glass Bottom Games And More Band Together To Support Those Affected By The Colorado Wildfires
Denver, Colorado (June 30th, 2012) – Cerulean Games has announced a 48 hour game jam, BlazeJam 2012, to raise funds for those affected by the Colorado wildfires. Starting July 7th, a host of video games will be developed by groups of volunteers, items will be auctioned off, and all auction proceeds and donations will be given to the charities recommended by www.HelpColoradoNow.com.
"We may not be fire fighters, but there is a lot we can still do," said Dave Calabrese, CEO of Cerulean Games. "Colorado is my home, and I'm watching it burn to the ground. Thousands of people are being left stranded, and the fire has already cost an estimated $3.2 million. My company is stepping up to the plate to do our part and earn money to help as many people as we can to recover from this tragedy."
The game jam will kick off the morning of Saturday, July 7th, and will continue through the night of Sunday, July 8th. Funds will be raised through auctions of game related items and donations, where anyone donating at least $1 will receive a copy of all games developed during BlazeJam 2012. 100% of the money generated during the jam will be given to the charities listed at www.HelpColoradoNow.com, as recommended by FEMA.
Dave Calabrese calls for development help from the industry, adding, "We need developers to join this to make it as successful as it can be. Whether you are just one person who wants to make your own game in a basement, or an entire team who wants to show your skills, everyone is welcome to join. Even artists, sound engineers, community managers, everyone – this is a fast paced effort to earn funds as fast as possible, and we need all the help we can get. Email us at email@example.com to join in, and let's show the wildfire victims how much the game industry cares!"
