Finding the Game Jam

We've moved slightly this year!

If you attended last year, go round the side of Millennium Point where we hosted last years GGJ and enter Millennium Point there. Go up a level to the Birmingham City University reception and ask for the jam. Somebody will be around or will be summoned :D

If you've never been before, have no fear! Enter Millennium Point via the Jennens Road entrance which is at the 'back' of Millennium point where the Multistorey carpark is. Follow the signs for Birmingham City University, it'll be a floor above where you are. Ask for the Game Jam!


Arrival Time

6pm is the earliest you can arrive, nobody will be there otherwise :D

7pm is when we'll start doing keynotes and speeches and you can all form teams if you haven't already.


Please clarify: is 6pm the

Please clarify: is 6pm the earliest time we can arrive, or the latest?



Quick post to let you guys know the rough plan for the GGJ Weekend at Millennium Point!

Registration of the event will start at 6pm on Friday, we're inside the main Millennium Point building this year.

At 7pm we'll kick off with keynotes and any other talks, and from then on you're jamming!

We'll aim to start uploading games about 2pm on the Sunday and have presentations around 3pm with the jam closing for another year around 4-5pm.

Note: The venue will be locked overnight, so between certain hours you will not be allowed re-entry to the venue.

As last year we have enough PC's for all, and they will be preloaded with a standard suite of software. You will be able to download other software if you wish as long as you are legally licensed to do so.
