Slow Game Jam
Sat, 25 Mar 2017, 11:00 – Sun, 26 Mar 2017, 19:00
Let's gather for a little creative game jam. #slowgame
Theme: Slow Game
Slow games are about getting away from instant gratification and letting things develop and mature without haste. Through this slow games hope to give players a more rewarding and less superficial gameplay experience.

Anyone is welcome to join us, from experienced developers to first-time jammers, in what will be a very chilled weekend of making games. Even if you have never made a game before, or are not sure if you have the skills, Danny and I will be assisting with your programming and art questions. Making games is for everyone!
Feel free to work in a team, solo or even switch teams throughout. In the spirit of the slow movement, the jam will be all about savouring the process of creating. So bring your laptop, (maybe a pillow too) and get comfy.
We are eternally grateful to London South Bank University who have allowed us to jam in their games studio. Please make sure you Register a place in order to get access to the building. Remember, the venue is not 24h so we will be required to leave the premises at 6pm on Saturday night and come back at 10am. Get some sleep, everyone! This is a slow game jam.
