Here's our video from last year!
Here is some info about the Global Game Jam at SAE Institute London.
Here is the timetable for the event:
Friday afternoon: jammers start arriving. You can make yourself comfortable to the 1st floor lecture theatre or the cafe/lounge on the 4th floor.
Friday 5pm: event kicks off in the 1st floor lecture theatre. We'll watch the keynote video and the secret theme will be revealed. Participants get into teams, and I will be helping with this.
Teams tend to occupy the classrooms for the weekend, (5th and 6th floors) and the 4th floor lab area is also available.
Now get started!
Saturday: making games all day!
Sunday 3pm: stop making your games. Upload them to the GGJ website, and then please help tidy up! :-)
4pm: Back in the lecture theatre, the teams demonstrate their games to everyone.
6-7pm go home please! :-)
