‘Dublin Gamecraft’: Irish Game Jam On February 25th
This coming Saturday February 25th a game jam is to be taking place in Dublin in Ireland, so if you’re nearby head on over and have a little fun, some free food and make games!
Dublin GameCraft is a game jam style event to be held in DIT, Kevin Street, Ireland on the 25th of February and it’s kicking off at 9am – good job there’s a free breakfast provided then! Oh and free lunch too, this is like the best jam ever, no?
Anyway, enough of the food (whimper), the Dublin Gamecraft is an 8 hour game jam – yes just 8 hours to make a game – and it’s open to anyone who can attend. Development teams can be pre-determined or decided on the day (although the latter will eat into development time). There’s even a little Google group for people to meet up and make teams. You’ll be pleased to hear that you can use whatever game building tools you like (Unity/GameMaker/UDK etc), and target whatever platform you’re most familiar with (Windows/iPad/Xbox).
According to the organizers there are over 140 people already signed up to the event, so it’s going to be a bustling venue. There’s no entry free but there are prizes to hand out, a full list of which you can see here. The winners will be picked by the judges at a venue lined up for afterwards where everyone can unwind and await the verdict. But let’s not forget people, it’s all about having and fun and meeting new people!
