Hello! This is a weekend of game making. Everyone is welcome, regardless of experience or ability, so long as they're willing to get their hands dirty. It'll be fun, and you'll have made a Thing, guaranteed.
There will be a theme announced at the start of the weekend, and hopefully several small mini-themes lasting a few hours each. Although if you want to do your own thing, that's totally fine, too.
We'll be starting at 10am on Saturday, and finishing at 5 on Sunday. There will also be a planned trip to a local drinking establishment on the Saturday evening, so that'll be fun.
The gamejam is kindly hosted by the School Of Computing Sciences at the UEA - we'll be in one or two of the computer sciences studios.
The computers at the UEA will have the following capabilities:
Visual Studio 2010 or 2012 for C++ development. This can be used for win32 programming or OpenGL.
Paint .NET for image preparations
Gamemaker Studio Free Version (to be installed especially for the gamejam)
(further software details to follow later)
Or if you want to bring a laptop with your own resources and format of working then this is fine also.
If you are bringing your laptop and have no idea where to start then feel free to take at look at the following link for easy to use software: http://youcanmakevideogames.com/tools
If you have any questions, please get in touch: my email address is [masked], leave a message on the meetup page or I'm on twitter as @SamJermy87
The event is being opened up to students at the UEA and due to the possibility of high numbers wanting to come I will have to introduce a maximum limit of 65 spaces.
