We’re hosting a Game Jam Lite at the Edinburgh Digital Entertainment Festival this month! For those of you who don’t know, the EDEF being held at the Assembly Rooms in the heart of Edinburgh. The event brings together the worlds of arts, entertainment and technology.
The Game Jam Lite will be in the tech hub for two days per week and is a simplified version of the traditional Game Jam. It is perfect for kids wanting to try their hand at game design!
Here’s how you take part in the Game Jam Lite:
Draw a new and original game character on one of our forms at the stand, and describe the game they appear in on the other side. The best design will be made into a real game box by our artists!
The winner will be picked on August 29th and our Top 10 favourite designs will be featured here on our website!
There is no age limit to entries and you can submit as many ideas as you like. We only ask that you do not draw a character or use a game that already exists. Our developers will also be on site to talk about all aspects of game design and production, and give career advice to anyone wanting to explore a job in games.
You can find out more about what’s going on at the EDEF on their website. We hope to see you there!
The dates we’ll be there are:
Wednesday 10th & Thursday 11th August
Monday 15th & Tuesday 16th August
Saturday 27th & Sunday 28th August
