Stealthjam From Home Initiative Announced
[one_third]Want to participate in Stealthjam but there’s no location near you? Now you can, from home![/one_third]
We at Sneaky Bastards have received a significant amount of feedback from readers interested in participating in Stealthjam, but have no organised event location near them. So, we’re pleased to announce the Stealthjam From Home initiative, which will allow anyone at any location – whether as a solo developer, or as a team – to be a part of Stealthjam.
Interested participants need only fill out the registration form below, and be ready to participate in Stealthjam this coming Friday!
Note that unfortunately we are not able to offer giveaways, such as the Steam copy of the Thief Collection, or prizes, to participants of Stealthjam From Home. However, all games will be included in the Sneaky Bastards roundup, to be posted at www.sneakybastards.net shortly after Stealthjam concludes.
We hope you have a great Stealthjam, and look forward to seeing how you explore the stealth genre!
Stealthjam is a 48-hour Game Jam in which participants will design, prototype and explore new avenues of stealth gameplay.
The Global Stealth Game Jam will kick off in Sydney, where Sneaky Bastards and AIE staff will host Stealthjam from the 22nd to the 24th of June.
Though Stealthjam begins in Sydney, it has already begun to spread further, making Stealthjam a global event.
Participants will be hearing from 2012’s prominent independent stealth developers, including:
Andy Schatz (Monaco, Pocketwatch Games)
Nels Anderson (Mark of the Ninja, Klei Entertainment)
Tom Francis (Gunpoint, Suspicious Developments)
Dan Silvers (Children of Liberty, Lantana Games)
…as well as some of the biggest names in stealth gaming that have yet to be revealed!

Stealthjam is the world’s first global stealth game jam. Show up by yourself, or with a group of friends, and spend the next 48 hours by torchlight creating new kinds of stealth gameplay. We at Sneaky Bastards love stealth, and want to see stealth gameplay explored more! Stealth is about so much more than sneaking through shadows, hiding behind boxes, or donning a disguise. We’re beginning to see indie developers take stealth to new and interesting places, but it’s time to dig even deeper!

For those of us too far from any jam location and more interested in observing/analysis than participating, will it be possible to view/read talks of notable developers?
Yes, we can make this available in some form.
Great idea ! I\’d enter but I\’m far too busy to do a jam between the 22nd and the 24th 🙁
