LoJam is a free event where game developers, designers and artists get together for an entire weekend and as teams or as individuals, attempt to build a complete game from scratch! We aim to help foster and grow the game development scene in London and welcome all who wish to take part, be they beginners, hobbyists, students, or professionals.
This year we're focusing on games that promote and inspire positive mental health, and would love to see our jammers create some amazing new games to add to this space!
We've also teamed up with London Health Sciences Foundation to give all of our participants the ability to seek sponsorship for taking part in this epic, 48-hour game-dev marathon, and in doing so help the Foundation continue doing their amazing work, which includes providing treatment for young people experiencing mood and/or anxiety issues, as well as first-episode psychosis.
As with previous years, all participants will have access to industry leading mentors, sound and art departments to help, and tons of learning opportunities and prizes!
