Here's a screenshot of the starter template btw. Only 2 days to go before the Nokia Jam kicks off!

DragonRuby Game Toolkit is sponsoring Nokia Jam 3, a one-week long jam where you build a game that has the resolution limitations of the old school Nokia 3310. Here's your chance to get a free license to the game engine and participate in something fun :-)

DragonRuby is sponsoring and is giving away free licenses to Game Toolkit. The hackathon starts in 5 days.

It's not an unhealthy "stay up all night" type of hackathon and you'll have almost two weeks to build your game. Please boost!
