Game Jam

Participants have 48 hours to create a video game. A secret theme will be announced on the Friday evening after the keynote presentation. All games should incorporate or follow this theme in order to be considered for team prizes. Mentors with game development experience (both from research and the industry) will be available to give advice and help trouble shoot any issues.


All participants have access to the computers in the Computer Science labs on campus, which come fully equipped with a variety of game development tools and software. Participants are also more than welcome to bring their own laptops and equipment. If you have any questions regarding technical setup, please contact
