Looking for the chance to combine your desire to discover extra terrestrial life and make video games? Today is your lucky day.

The SETI Institute, which explores the origins of life and hunts for life on other planets, has announced the SETI-JAM. The aim of the event is to create games themed on the Drake Equation – that’s the calculation that estimates the number of 'communicative extra-terrestrial civilizations' in the Milky Way galaxy.

Participants will be able to tap the brains of over 70 scientists and will be free to create titles of any genre. The only stipulation is that genuine SETI data is integrated.

Our sister-site MCV has further details.
