Tandem Events – organisers of the Develop in Brighton conference – today announced the launch of the first Develop Game Jam at this year’s Develop in Brighton conference.
Sponsored by Square Enix Collective and with tech provided by Unreal Engine 4, the Game Jam will take place on the 9 & 10 July and teams will be tasked with developing a game based on a theme revealed only 24 hours beforehand.
The competition will run from 2pm until midnight on Wednesday 9 July and then from 8am until 2pm on Thursday 10 July. Teams will consist of up to four people and all ranges of experience are welcome.
Industry mentors will visit the Game Jam throughout the conference to offer their advice and wisdom. Mentors already confirmed include Ella Romanos, Mike Bithell, Barry Meade and Georg Backer.
Entry is free, but there are only 30 places available. For more information and to register visit http://www.developconference.com/content/develop-game-jam
