What You'll Do

In 48 hours make a new game to a random theme.

What You'll Learn

If you’ve entered a hackathon before, then you know what’s up. Whether this is your first time working on a game or are a veteran of the industry, Game Jams are your opportunity to connect with people passionate about making things and for you to try your hand at building a game! During the competition, you’ll be working against the clock to push through each stage of development – from the initial concept to the final marketing. You’ll learn more than you thought was possible and by the end you’ll have made new friends and tried new things.
