Jamchester is back on 23-25 June

Honoured to be the partner charity of Jamchester again! It's an annual, weekend-long video game and VR creation competition that takes place on Friday 23 June through to Sunday 25 June at The Studio event space in the heart of Manchester.

Teams of professional developers (and a sprinkling of up-and-coming student talent) compete onsite to create the best games in a weekend. Participants will have the opportunity to network with other developers, learn new skills and have fun! Think of it as a chance to recharge your creative batteries in a friendly environment.

Teams can be up to four people. The event is open to pre-existing teams of friends, indie devs, students and we encourage individuals to sign up and join/create new teams themselves.

The jam is based on the established HAC100 format where developers stay onsite and work overnight on their projects.

To level the playing field, the overall theme will only be announced at the start of the weekend and selected by the organisation team. There will be an overall main prize for game of the weekend and other smaller prizes based different categories.

For more details, please contact the awesome Claire Foster, Director of the Hack Manchester Team, at, @squarejazz,
