Frequently Asked Questions
When is GAAM?
Saturday, Dec 7, 2013, officially starting at 6:00pm, and officially ending at 11pm, but we have a habit of doing something extra afterwards.
Lots of people! On Guard, Angry Sons, DJ Nes, and Nightswim to name a few. Here’s a link to the full list that’s constantly updating.
Which Indie Game Studios are going to be there?
Suntoad Games, Invert Game Studios, Immersed Games, Smash Games, and many more!
I wanna enter the Cosplay contest! How can i sign up?
It’s easy! Just fill out the form here, and pick your theme music (yup GO Cosplay contests let you pick your own theme music ).
Is there going to be another AFTER AFTER Party?
Maaaaaaaaaybe. I’d recommend RSVPing to the last one…and if for some reason news pops up, you’ll hear about it immediately. Not gonna lie…the last one was awesome. https://www.facebook.com/events/139309549605858/.
Where should I stay? Is there a hotel nearby?
YSE! The Omni actually is a few driving minutes away from the GAAM Show, and within walking distance of the After After Party, AAAAND they’re doing a special for GAAM attendees of only $79! http://gamesartandmusic.com/2013-winter-gaam-show/hotel-special/
Wait…this is in Jacksonville? Where!?
Are there going to be video games there?
Always! Storm Unity normally takes care of, and does an excellent job, of setting up engaging game stations for guests of the GAAM Show.
How do artists get involved?
Easy! Artists can enter our juried art show here. Just make your art is formatted to print on an 11×17, and our judges will quickly look at your art and get right back to you.
Is this a local only?
We’re VERY local friendly, but this is open to all. So you could be in Alaska, or China, or wherever (we even love Martians) and participate!
How do vendors get involved?
Good question. If you’re video game related, contact me here if you’d like to be a vendor. If you sell something like paintings of birds, used dvds, or rims, baby dolls, etc.,etc. please don’t. You wouldn’t sell much at the show, the guests won’t enjoy it, and then we’d look like jerks for taking your money.
I make video games! How do I showoff my game at GAAM?
You MAKE games? You better click here and email us. Like…TODAY. We love game creators!
How much are tickets?
If you get your ticket now, it’s only $30 per ticket, or 2 for $50. If you wait, it’s going to cost $50 per ticket, or $100 for two, $150 for 3, etc,etc. So do it now! It’ll save you money! (and help us plan for food and drinks! )
WHAT IF I WANT TO MAKE ART THAT ISN’T AN 11X17 POSTER?
Thanks for making my life complicated. jk Email me and we’ll talk. No promises, but we’ll talk:)
I want to be in the Charity Art Exhibit! How do I sign up?
Unfortunately, the Charity Art Exhibit is invitation only. We seriously just invite people out of the blue (after spending weeks if not months trying to find the best). You can send us pics of your work, and if it makes sense for the show, we’ll send you an invite.
