Please join us for games++, a free 12-hour game development event where participants build games from scratch over 10 hours, then put down their mice and pencils so the public can play their creations.
Designed as a collaborative, communal making experience, games++ incrementally adds to the pool of amazing, experimental, unique, one-off games in the world.
Starting at 9am, participants will craft video-, board-, and other games from scratch. No prior planning is allowed: all games will be created from start to finish in just 10 hours. At 7.00pm all work stops and the doors open to the public to play the finished projects!
To prevent planning before the event, all games will be made according to the secret theme:
[ the theme will be revealed at 9.00am at the start of the jam ]
Anyone! We welcome game-makers of all skill levels and ages (younger game makers should collaborate with a parent). Artists, designers, writers, game-enthusiasts, programmers, crafters, hackers, and anyone else interested in making a new board- or video-game should register!
Don't make games? Join us at 7pm to play the results!
