About this event

Also sponsored by Desura Net and Insert Coin Clothing.

The London Game Jam is a 2 days long session of game-making, networking and fun aimed from complete beginners to professionals (designers, coders, artists, sound-people and writers are all welcome).

The event is sponsored by Microsoft and the money raised will be donated in full to Special Effect, EFF and Child’s Play. The venue accommodates 60 people maximum and will be open from 8:30am to 21:00, but you are free to continue ‘jamming’ anywhere your heart brings you and your team overnight.

A ticket will be required to gain access to the venue, but don’t panic! Its price will be donated in full & in equal parts to the charities aforementioned.

On the other hand, may the event sell out, you will be able to participate to the game jam remotely even if you are far away or not able to reach us @ Modern Jago. We are now in the process of setting up a system that will allow you to link your game to our website and gain visibility.

People can  remotely collaborate with the in-house participants (we would need you to let us know you are participating) and the 'hybrid teams' will still be eligible to win the prizes

Remote participants (offsite), will have the chance to send us two links, one to the blog/dev diary/livestream and the other to the game; we'll make a section in The London Game Jam website.

Only the in-house participants or 'hybrid teams' will be able to win prizes

We will hold a social at the Translate bar after the game jam, if you did not manage to get a ticket on time, you can always pop around for a drink and a chat!

The location does not have its own PCs, so you will need your own laptop/tablet, adaptors and pens and whatever else you may need!

The Windows prizes will go to the best game/app made for Windows 8/Windows Mobile/Microsoft Kinect (they may be split in first, second, third place).

The game jam will have a theme which will be decided on the day of the jam

Participants can create the app/game for the whole duration of the jam (even when Modern Jago shuts for the night)

It would be best if you prepared your computers before joining the jam (install everything you need, make sure you have all the assets you may need)  since we are in 60 the connection may be limited.
