Gamecraft is all about the excitement of getting started, and the satisfaction of getting to the end - in between are the half-baked ideas that just about work, the quarter-baked short-cuts that work better than they deserve to, and the ages of concentration to get an animation right because it makes the character "just perfect". It's a fun ride, and it's all concentrated all into one day, so there's none of the crazy-sleepless-zombie-coding seen at weekend jams.

It's a game jam for people who are interested in game-making to come together under one roof to make games, meet people and generally have fun. GameCraft provides a venue so you can concentrate on making fun games. We also provide food and beverages throughout the day.
A game jam is an event for people to make games based on a theme (announced at the beginning of the jam) within a given period of time. It can be 8 hours or even up to 24 hours.
You bring your own tools, laptops, sound equipment, peripherals, software, assets, etc. We do not provide any equipment.
No, you can make non-digital games like boardgames, card games, RPGs, other types of pervasive games. All you need to do is bring your own craft materials. We don't provide any on the day.
YES! You like games, and having fun. You don't have to be a programmer, if you can draw, tell stories, make music, and more... come along!
Nope, let us know when you check-in at registration on Saturday morning (08:30 till 08:59), and let us know what skills you have, and we can form a group in the morning before we announce the theme.
As many as you want. :-)
