Jam Site Description: 

For 2021 it's a brave new online world - so we are recreating a virtual version of our regular venue, The Skiff, in Discord. That's where we will be jamming from 6.00pm on Friday until Sunday evening.

Please see our jammer guide for a bit more information as to what you can expect from the event.

We will be opening the doors of the virtual site at 9am Friday, to give you all time to find your way around, post introductions and let people know what your skills are or what you are looking to do this jam. It's a perfect opportunity to try something different from your usual skill set!

The Brighton site will be a generaly relaxed affair, and people of all talents, professions and skill levels are welcome.  Any kind of game can be created, including digital, physical and paper - and teams will be formed to work around a theme.

No background in tech or previous programming experience is needed - we need artists, sound designers, organisers, writers - and enthusiasm to come up with cool game ideas!  People will be on hand to help out where you need - and we will have channels set up to encourage knowledge sharing for different disciplines. We also want encourage diversity at the event - under represented groups from the games industry are especially welcome. 

We're afraid that this year the drinks and snacks are all up to you - this will be a purely online event! We will however have a virtual kitchen channel to hang out in, have a cup of tea, and catch up with your fellow jammers. We also intend to run show and tell sessions on the Saturday, as well as a site music playlist that you can choose to contribute to, and more!

We will also be upholding a safe space policy for the event which can be found here.
