Hi folks, it’s jam time again! We are going to run yet another hybrid game-making event after the success of our previous hybrid jam.
Thanks to support from Ardán and GTC for helping us put together another venue-based jam.
[Update for Day 2]
Super thanks to GameCraft (supported by Coding Grace) for sponsoring our post-jam drinks and food. This is a delightful way to wrap up the jam, giving people a chance to catch up, exchange stories and connect. This would not have be possible without the generous support from our geeky event friends at Coding Grace and GameCraft.
