Hey everyone! Just a little post to let you know I’m running a game jam soon!
Ever wanted to try your hand making a game in 24 hours? Find out by joining us for #LincJam at the University of Lincoln! Game jams are an excellent way of quickly prototyping games in a friendly and enthusastic enviroment. You’ll learn so much about game development in a ridiculously short space of time!
How does it work? You (or a team of up to five of you) come along to the jam in Complab B(3rd Floor, MHT Building) and at 10:00am you get given the jam’s theme – at this point you’ve got 24 hours to make something cool! These games will then get judged at 12:00 on Sunday by a panel of experts, they’ll then hand out awards for:
- Best Use of Theme
- Most Innovative Game
- Juiciest Game
- Best Overall Game
- Best use of The Wildcard
There’s also the chance to be the first winners of the Hitpoint Trophy – which will be decided by Kieran Hicks and Sean Oxspring, developers at Hitpoint Games Ltd.
You can vote on potential themes via this link: http://poll.fm/5gxvn
LincJam is graciously hosted by The University of Lincoln School of Computer Science
You should be a university student over the age of 18+ to participate in this game jam! If you are a developer and want to come along then please contact the event organiser (Sean Oxspring) as soon as possible to ensure you are allowed to participate!
The main jam is at the University of Lincoln, but if you want to develop a game for the jam and upload it to the itch.io jam page from somewhere else in the world, feel free! Making games is fun afterall, and this jam is all about making games for the sake of making games.
