Event description

Description

The Game Gig back for the second year running, powered by Studio Gobo and Electric Square. Join us in the Intel Lab at the William Gates building for 12 hours of game-creating fun!

Our challenge to you, is to make a gaming experience inspired by our theme, which will be announced on the day! You will be working with teams of up to 4 people.

We will be running workshops before and on the day of the event, teaching you the essentials of game making that will more than give you the skills you need to fly*. Industry experts will be on hand to help you with any issues you may have on the day.
