For the second of our official Ada Lovelace Day events this year, we’ve partnered with the Association for UK Interactive Entertainment and the London Games Festival to put on the XX Game Jam, a pioneering all-women event which will take place in London on 26/27th October.
A game jam is a gathering of developers, artists, and other creatives to design and make games in a very short space of time, in this case 24 hours. The event will run from 6.30pm on Friday 26 October until 11pm, and then from 9am until 6.30pm on Saturday 27 October. The theme for the games will be revealed on the Friday evening.
If you’re a programmer, producer, artist, designer, sound designer and composer, and you fancy coming along to try your hands at making some games, please apply for a spot. You don’t need to have any direct experience in the games industry, just enthusiasm!
Men are welcome to support the event and attend the games showcase and prize ceremony on the Saturday evening from 6.30pm, but only women may participate.
Entry to the event is free. Location is TBC but will be in London somewhere. And food and refreshments will be provided on both days. If you have any enquiries, please contact Debbie at Auroch Digital.
This event is also supported by DCRC@University of the West of England, London Games Festival, Next Gen Skills & Auroch Digital.
