The Tyler Junior College Game and Simulation Development Program will present ClickJam 2012 Tyler on Saturday, Aug. 18.

ClickJam 2012 will include a basic game creation clinic for new Multimedia Fusion 2 users, and experienced game creators will be challenged to build a complete game in 24 hours based on a secret subject that will be revealed at the opening of the event.

This event is free and open to game creators of all ages and experience levels, and each participant will receive a free copy of Multimedia Fusion 2, a $120 value.

Entries will be evaluated by a judging panel at the end of the event, and the creator of the best game will win prizes. After the event, a larger global contest will begin, for those who want to continue working on the game they started.

Clickteam, with assistance worldwide from groups like Hackergarage, is conducting this first-ever global ClickJam at various locations worldwide.
