Our first ever game jam was an incredible success. Created for all those who identify as LGBT+, to find others that are interested in making games with shared experiences.
From digital to board games, it’s about coming together in groups (or solo) over a weekend to create a game on a suggested theme.
No previous experience in creating games needed. You could be a traditional artist or illustrator, a creative writer, a organiser, a coder, a 3D modeller, a musician, a designer or just love games of all kinds!
A ‘finished’ game is never expected, it can be sketches, paper samples or parts of working code and all* are welcome regardless of skill levels. (*you do need to be 18+ for insurance purposes)
Friday 5 July: 6-9pm, Saturday 6 July 10am-9pm, Sunday 7 July 10am – 5pm
You don’t need to be there the whole time, but we recommend attending at least 2 days. Booking is essential though to help us manage numbers and catering.
With thanks to our event partner Just Eat
We encourage folks to work in groups of around 4-5 people of various skills to get together to create a game. Solo game jammers and smaller and larger groups welcome!
We’ll reveal a theme on Friday evening to help guide the creation of your games and remember, you don’t need to have a finished game at the end of Sunday!
If you need any help, we’ll have a few folks that have made games before to lends a hand with planning, coding, artwork and various other game creating skills.
The only materials we can’t provide is a computer for everyone, so if you want to use your computer or any special equipment then please bring these along.
This event is open to people in the LGBTQIA+ community only.
At this time, our cis and straight allies are valued as supporters but we want to keep the jam as a space for LGBTQIA+ folks to express themselves and champion their creative efforts. We ask you with kindness, to respect this.
