Are you a creative games designer, artist, programmer or audio designer up for a challenge? If so, come and be part of the Games Wales Community Game Jam. You will have the weekend to conceive and build a game based on unique theme chosen by the community leaders! You don't even have to produce a digital game - budding tabletop/board game makers are also welcome along!
Doors will be open from 5pm on Friday evening for everyone to meet, after which the theme will be announced. Games will need to be submitted to itch.io on Sunday before 4pm, after which teams will then have the opportunity to present their game to everyone else.
Tickets cover running costs for the weekend, and access to the Community Rooms and the Upper Arcade (if required) of The Arcade Vaults. This includes free teas and coffees, plus access to a kitchenette with a fridge and microwave. There will also be a lot of pizza available to all on the Friday night! We're located right in the City Centre so you will have access to plenty of other food options for the entire weekend.
Facilities also include access to 7 PCs and a MacBook, a printer and scanner, and a limited number of monitors. We will be restricting PC access to one per team unless circumstances permit this to change, and they will be available on a first come basis. Send us a message to find out more about them!
Note that this will not be a 24 hour site - access will be limited to 8/9am at the earliest and around 10/11pm at the latest. If you are coming in from outside of Cardiff there are lots of places to stay nearby.
