UK devs team up for The Great British Game Jam 2014!

by February 3rd, 2014

Three notable UK developers have teamed up for an all new game jam titled The Great British Game Jam 2014. Taking place on the 6-7th February 2014 The Great British Game Jam will feature participating teams from UK developers Team17, Bossa Studios and Future Games of London.

The theme of the jam will be revealed to the teams on the 6th February by independent body Ukie. Teams will then have 48 hours to come up with a prototype from scratch with judging taking place over the course of the weekend by a panel from Ukie. The results will be shared by 10am on the 11th February.

Imre Jele, Co-founder and Creator-in-Chief at Bossa Studios, has long been a fan of game jam methodology, “The monthly Game Jams at Bossa Studios are a treasure trove of creativity. With over 50 prototypes created these events provide us with an invaluable opportunity to explore novel game ideas and to improve our skills to craft immersive and surprising games. We are very excited to share that experience with other great developers during the Great British Game Jam.”

Industry veteran and Managing Director of Team17, Debbie Bestwick, added, “I am delighted for Team17 to be involved in the Great British Game Jam. The intensity of pitting creativity and rapid prototyping against the clock can have exciting and unexpected results. I’m eager to see what the event delivers.”
