UCLan Games Jam 2018


Our 1st and 2nd year Games Design students team up on an annual basis with Music Production and Screen Writing students for the UCLan Games Jam. This never fails to make the final three weeks of Semester 2 challenging and memorable for us all.
This year the theme of the Games Jam is 'Negative Space' and our students are working excitedly in the studios in a relaxed and informal atmosphere to compete to meet the challenge. We've invited several  Industry Visitors to come into the studios to see the work the students are doing for Uclan Games Jam.
We love our students to get feedback from people in the industry 

Thurs 19th April with Scott Swarbrick of Milky Tea Studios,
Wed 25th April with Naomi Robinson, Freelance Games Artist and Illustrator.
plus a visit from Games Designer, Peter Field of 'Media Molecule' on Friday 27th April
for the BIG finale and prizes!

There's lots of exciting ideas and discussion going on within each of the seven teams and it's great to see the progress on their games!
