6 House Rules
#1 Fresh Game / Code
We all start the game design at the same time. You may prepare and work on your logo, wireframes, idea validation, digital mockups and etc, before the Hackathon. However, NO coding can be done beforehand, so that we can keep things fair.
Tips: As fresh as a mojito ;-)
#2 Game / Code Review
Winning teams will be subject to a code-review at some point following the event. This will be to ensure everything was built at the Hackathon.
#3 Ownership and IP
Teams have full ownership of everything they build at Hackathon. You are free to do with it as you wish.
#4 Team Size
You may join as individual or team up with others. Up to 5 team members are allowed, preferably with at least one designer and one developer in the team.
#5 Demo Your Hack
You must demo your game prototype in 3 mins presentation followed by a 2 mins Q&A. Don’t be scared if you didn’t finish… It’s okay long as you tried your best!
