How does it work?
Everyone gathers on Friday late afternoon, watches a short video keynote with advice from leading game developers, and then the secret theme is announced. All sites worldwide are then challenged to make games based on that same theme, with games to be completed by Sunday afternoon.
As per always, we will have plenty of space for you to bring your laptop or desktop to hook up and jam away. You can order food with us when you sign up, and there will also be eating spaces, room to sleep, and on-site security.

- Personal hygiene products
- Various changes in clothes
- Anything required for sleeping arrangements
