Have you ever wanted to make a computer game but don’t have the time? Just said to yourself “I bet it takes forever to design and write a game.” You don’t need forever. You only need a weekend and a few friends.
This year Darklight is hosting our very first competitive GameJam event! Starting at 6:30pm on Friday 24th August and ending at 4pm on Sunday
A GameJam is a fixed amount of time where people, usually in teams come together in a shared space to make a game from start to finish.
What can you make in just over two days? Get together with your friends, with your workmates, with your college buddies. Collaborate. Create something.
Anyone can get involved. Programmers, illustrators, musicians, artists, writers. If you are interested but don’t know anyone else who is up for it, get in touch with our lovely team coordinator at Rosef dot events at gmail dot com and she’ll match you up with a team!
For two days teams will each work on building a game around a common theme. The theme is super secret and will only be revealed just before the competition starts!
Games will be judged by a local, home-grown games company and a Fabulous Prize will be given to the winners!
Winners will be announced at the awards ceremony which takes place at the Closing Film: Indie Game The Movie, TICKETS AND INFO HERE
