Games For Better #GameJam

Our friends down in Plymouth at SoGoodStudios are running a 48h game jam, raising awareness about Antibiotic Resistance on the evening of Friday 30th September through to Sunday 2nd October.

The theme of the Jam is ‘Antibiotic Resistance’ – we want to see games that teach about and raise awareness of this issue in fun and engaging ways.

The jam will take place in Plymouth University’s Babbage building, where developers taking part can stay for the full 48 hours. However, you can also take part remotely.

You can take part solo, or as part of a team.

You’ll be asked to submit a build of your game, as well as some gameplay footage, to a google drive folder, and to fill out a form with some more details on your entry.
