How to get to the site

Our jam will be held at the University of Warwick campus in MS.03 on Friday, moving to MB0.07 for Saturday and Sunday. Students from Warwick, other universities and members of the public are welcome - although we'd appreciate a heads-up if we've not met before!

What equipment should jammers bring?

We are unable to provide equipment or software, so we recommend that jammers bring their own laptops. We can't guarantee that desktop computers will fit in the room, as that will be dependent on the number of jammers we have. We also don't guarantee that Ethernet ports will be available during the event, so make sure your laptop's WiFi is working! We will provide paper, pens, blank cards and similar material for anyone planning to work on physical games, but you might want to bring your own things just in case.

About our site

Please register here on the GGJ site if you're planning to take part. Since we're on a university campus, there are food venues on-site and nearby. Our jam site is usually fairly laid-back - many of our jammers are uni students taking part as a hobby on the side of their main degree work so we're in it for the fun! Solo projects and group projects are both encouraged.

Schedule

Friday

Our site will open at 4pm in MS.03 (campus map: http://campus-cms.warwick.ac.uk/share/03f7b1733e9705c39338898a656bb8bd). The first hour will be used to meet other jammers, speculate on the theme and form teams. At 5pm, the keynote video will be shown, along with the theme. Jammers are encouraged to plan out their game rather than jumping straight in! The site will close at 9pm.

Saturday

We will re-open at 9am in MB0.07 (campus map: http://campus-cms.warwick.ac.uk/share/952b52b39913ef028ffeff6e472901f9). You'll get the bulk of your game done on Saturday. We encourage jammers create a basic page for their game here on this website at around 2pm - you'll probably have an idea of what the game is by now. The site closes at 10pm.

Sunday

We re-open at 9am in MB0.07, the same room as on Saturday. It's the final stretch - hopefully your game will come together today! We recommend you upload your game in whatever state it is in at the end of the jam - along with the full source code. It looks good for our site and for GGJ as a whole to get as many games submitted as possible, and you can always work on your project later and upload an updated version (but please keep the jam version available)!

We recommend starting to wrap up your game by 4pm and start submitting - 5pm is the deadline! The site is open until 6pm for people to show off their games, and to account for any issues submitting.
