Have a passion for game development? Think you’ve got the skills to create a game in a single day? Then don’t miss London GameCraft at CodeNode!
London GameCraft is a game jam event where folks come together to make games! Games are built from scratch on any platform you like, at the end of the day the games are demoed to a panel of judges who award prizes for the best contenders.
It’s a great chance to flex your creative muscles, tackle some quick and dirty coding problems, and to get out there and meet other game-makers face to face.
Teams (or brave individuals,) get together and are given a theme early in the morning and from there have as little as 8 hours (sometimes 12 if we’re feeling generous). You have 12 hours from kick-off to make a game, followed by networking and play-testing (by the judges and your peers) and at the end winners are announced. We will provide all meals (including a beer & pizza reception in the evening) and refreshments throughout the day. Please bring your own laptop and power leads (you always need them).
Here are some tips on gearing up on the day.
If you are planning on joining us, please have a quick look at our Code Of Conduct and adhere to it!
This event is open to over 18s only. We will look at running an event for under 18s in the future!

##What is a GameCraft about? 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. :-)
