Yorkshire Game Jam

As part of the GamesLab Leeds programme , Ocean Spark Studios are running a game jam at The Media Centre with the theme of 'Yorkshire'.

The 2 day jam will take place 23-24th of Feb, starting at 11:00 am on the 23rd and finishing at 16:00 on the 24th. Winners will be announced following Friday (March 1st).

The Game Jam is open to anyone with experience in game development (students included). We are particularly interested in Ltd companies and Sole traders/freelancers.

This is a great opportunity to network with other local developers and to create a game based on the best place in the UK... YORKSHIRE.

Equipment is not provided, therefore please bring your laptops/kit with you. There are plenty of plugs and extension cables on hand, as well as wifi. There will also be access to x2 Oculus rifts across the weekend.

Lunch, snacks and drinks provided throughout the weekend!
