Please note the following:
There will be two rooms for showers (one of which will also be used for sound production). We also have limited sleeping space for those who aren't night owls. Mats will be provided so if you want to be comfy we recommend bringing your own sleeping bag (or sleeping in the comfort of your own bed). The two rooms will also be used as sleeping options (we will be hot-bedding) for anyone who wants to take a quick nap!

Game Jams are primarily a BYO computer event, but we do have a limited number of computers on request. Please fill out the form below if you require one:
