The Indie Galactic Space Jam was an idea started by a fellow Fiean, Kunal Patel, who is also the founder of the local Orlando Indie community and meet-up Indienomicon. While I haven't been to an Indienomicon meeting I do have many friends who've gone and who use it to promote their personal projects in the O-town dev scene.
The Space Jam was an event to celebrate and promote interest in space exploration and science. Orlando is considered part of the Space Coast scene, having many Sim and space oriented tech companies.
I was so excited to be able to work again with some of my favorite Fieans. One of my producers from Pitch Jumper, Kevin, asked me about a month ago if I wanted to join and I was like "YES I WANT ALL THE SPACE GAMES." Kevin is great to work with, and we have similar interest in promoting education in the sciences (he was once a high school teacher before going into the games industry) so this was a great opportunity to have fun doing what we love while promoting cool topics.
