What is it?

The London Game Jam is a 2 days long session of game-making starting the 1st until the 2nd of June, networking and fun aimed from complete beginners to professionals (designers, coders, artists, sound-people and writers are all welcome). The event is sponsored by Microsoft and the money raised will be donated in full to Special Effect, EFF and Child's Play.

The venue accommodates 60 people maximum and will be open from 8:30am to 21:00, but you are free to continue ‘jamming' anywhere your heart brings you and your team overnight. A ticket will be required to gain access to the venue, but don't panic! Its price will be donated in full & in equal parts to the charities aforementioned. On the other hand, may the event sell out, you will be able to participate to the game jam remotely even if you are far away or not able to reach us @ Modern Jago. We are now in the process of setting up a system that will allow you to link your game to our website and gain visibility.
