So, The Foundry!

For GGJ 2018 we have two former student union bars to ourselves - transformed into a brand new dedicated space for game jams and technology events.

Both floors are inspired by the tech that made (and continues to make) Bristol a great place to be creative with technology and the GGJ will be our first ever event and a great way to launch the space (if it's finished in time!)

We have 2 x GIANT 86" Microsoft Surface hubs, 4 x 55" 4k screens, projectors, 2 x dedicated spaces for VR rigs, loads of tv's in the works as well as 30 1080gtx workstations with unity, Adobe etc. but basically put, loads of space to get together and make games! 

We are only a 1-minute walk (in a straight line) from the UWE bus station, and are lit by a huge neon sign that you can't miss!

On google maps we are literally right under the text that says "University of the West of England", on the ground floor.
