The Train Jam is a game jam that takes place on an Amtrak car during the trip from Chicago to San Francisco. The idea is that it leads into the Game Developer’s Conference.
The 2016 Train Jam will occur on March 10-12, 2016. The tickets cost between $170 and $390 depending on amenities.
The organizers are also offering their Student Ambassador Program which is a partnership with various universities which will give ambassadors a Coach-Class ticket, access to all sponsor-provided benefits, and a GDC Expo Pass.
