A Game Jam is a method of rapid prototyping an idea, going from concept to a working version in anything from a few hours to days. This is in contrast to the normal development cycle of a game which runs from months to years.
Game Jams are a great way to bring a team together or create new teams to rapidly develop an idea, to explore a theme or just for fun. We’ve organised a number of game jams/hacks for different organisations in various formats; 'Gamify Your PhD‘ for the Wellcome Trust, The Royal Society Game Jam, XX Game Jam (the first all female game jam in the world) and Global Game Jam Bristol for the last 3 years. Contact us if you think a game jam/hack would be an interesting way to explore what matters to you!
