Event Details

Hello! A few months back, there was a gamejam at the hackspace: http://londonjam.eventbrite.com/ . It went well enough that people thought there should be another one. So we are having one. Would you like to come along?

gamejam is like a hackweekend for videogames. You arrive and spend 2 days or so making a necessarily limited videogame, often with other people. It's welcome to beginners - there are plenty of drag-and-drop tools for making videogames - for old broken platformers, there's klik'n'play, for visual novels there's ren'py, and there's a Flash visual gamemaking tool a friend has been working on he'll almost certain bring. The focus is on making some kind of interesting gameplay rather than technical brilliance. Or at least, something "interesting".

The theme of this jam will be making games for our very own Hackspace arcade machine. On a side note, if anyone wants to help renovate an arcade machine, please get in touch. It's  the shell of an original Neo-Geo machine, but we shall jam new games inside.

People will be there from 10am on the Saturday until the evening on the Sunday. There will be a pub trip organized for the Saturday evening, and there will no doubt be forays to some of the excellent Vietnamese places nearby for lunch. There's also a Tesco nearby for casual snacking, and a full kitchen in the space, if you're feeling frugal. If you're coming from outside London, get in touch - there will be places to crash.
