Accessibility reminder, don't miss out on 10 points

Thanks Jason, and a reminder for everyone - list your accessibility features on your game's page, it only takes a few seconds (bullet points is fine) and is a very easy way to get 10 points.

Worth doing, it's looking like a close run thing, there are several games at the top with similar scores, some people have implemented features without realising it, and some have thought they have but haven't, so those 10 points could make all the difference.


Awesome jam!

Thanks to everyone who came along and made such excellent games.

Thanks to Ian Hamilton for the accessibility advice, and to Robert Swan and Jodie Azhar, our industry panel.

Thanks also to all the SAE/Qantm London staff who helped make it possible.

If you didn't get a certificate, or you would prefer a cleaner one, no worries, just email me and I will send you one.

See you next time!


bit late

I wont be able to be there until about 6 as I don't finish work until half 5 *tears*


See you this afternoon!

See you later, sorry to those who signed up late, but we can't have more than 70 people. If your number is <= 76 you can attend (due to cancellations).

Cancellations, room for 4 more

Hi, there have been a few cancellations, so if your jammer number is <=74 you can attend.
Thanks to the guys who emailed me, and please let me know if you have a place but can't make it.
If you are coming, please can you fill in your profile, at least with your NAME! Or no certificate at the end!


Timetable for the weekend

Here is the timetable for the event:

Friday afternoon: jammers start arriving. You can make yourself comfortable in the 1st floor lecture theatre or the cafe/lounge on the 4th floor.

Friday 5pm: event kicks off in the 1st floor lecture theatre. We'll watch the keynote video and the secret theme will be revealed. Participants get into teams, and I will be facilitating this.
Teams tend to occupy the classrooms for the weekend, (5th and 6th floors) and the 4th floor lab area is also available.
Now get started!

Saturday: making games all day!

Sunday 3pm: stop making your games. Upload them to the GGJ website, and then please help tidy up!
4pm: Back in the lecture theatre, the teams demonstrate their games to everyone.
5-6pm go home please! :-)



Hi Jason,

Can you please tell us the planning of the weekend ? Starting hour, ending hour, etc.



Parking is not great around here

..just to answer the question about parking. Look for parking in residential streets away from the main road.


68? Room for TWO more!

That's right, we can have up to SEVENTY jammers this time! Our kind and generous overlords have increased the number from 50. If your jammer number is <= 70, you CAN attend! If your number is > 70, I'm afraid you CAN'T attend, unless there is a cancellation. If your number is <= 70 and you won't be attending, PLEASE LET ME KNOW so I can give your place to someone else. Thanks!


Have I got a place?

I signed up today - after your comment about individual emailing - am I still in for this one? I see that the number count is well over your 50 already!

Oh, and what's the parking like round the college?

Many thanks, Tom


Wow, lots of jammers!

Dear Jammers, I will email you individually over the next week or so to confirm your place. In the past the limit has been 50 people, but I hope that we can fit in a few more this time. PLEASE email me if you do not need your place. Cheers!
