Skills Matter is delighted to announce that it will host the first ever London GameCraft event on Saturday 10th August at the Skills Matter eXchange!

Following the phenomenal success and excitement around Dublin GameCraft, the event is now going global with events planned in London and New York City!

What is Global GameCraft? GameCraft is a games jam event designed around building the gaming community. We aim to create events which allow game-makers to meet, share ideas, have fun, compete for prizes and most importantly make games!

The first GameCraft took place in Dublin in February 2012 in DIT with over 120 attendees producing more than 35 games. Since then Dublin GameCraft has gone from strength to strength with events in GamesFlá Thurles, in Belfast, and even a charity GameCraft for ISPCA.

What is a Game Jam? London GameCraft is a game jam event where folks come together to make games!

Teams (or brave individuals,) get together and are given a theme early in the morning and from there have as little as 8 hours (sometimes 12 if we’re feeling generous).

Games are built from scratch on any platform you like, at the end of the day the games are demoed by a panel of judges who award prizes for the best contenders.

It’s a great chance to flex your creative muscles, tackle some quick and dirty coding problems, and to get out there and meet other game-makers face to face.
