Lets hack a game together!

The dates might change to Saturday to Sunday, instead of including Friday evening.

Friday

Meet at the Cowherds in Southampton at roughly 7.30pm. From here, we're split into teams of roughly 4 or 5 people a team. We're also decide on the game themes during the evening (semi randomly) and spend the rest of the night plotting :) Any platform is allowed, as long as you can demo the game on hardware at the end of play Sunday. Also, no coding until we start on Saturday, but that doesn't mean you can't plan!

Saturday

A whole day of programming!

We'll be opening up at 8.30am, with code commencing at 9.30am (unless we all get there and setup earlier). We'll have Tea, Coffee, Coke & Sprite/7up available all day, with crisps and things. We'll have pizza for lunch, which will be delivered. We've got the room until 10pm.

Sunday

Not quite a whole day of programming!

We'll be opening up at 8.30am again and you can pretty much start coding at once :) We'll then run through till 2.30pm, at which points coding ends. You'll then have 1 hour to get a demo presentation ready of your game. at 3.30pm we're start demoing the games, each team will score the other teams on a couple of categories. Once everyone has demoed, we're total up the scores and announce the winner :)

What will I need to bring?

Laptop, software for developing on and demo hardware. We do have wireless access, but if you have any network switches and cables that would be helpful. Snacks if you want anything specific :)

Prizes

Are looking to be missing, as we've had trouble getting sponsorship :( But we'll get something for the winners!
