Ukie Student Game Jam 2017

17 May 2017 to 19 May 2017

The Ukie Student Game Jam is returning for its forth year on May 17-17 2017 The Game Jam again will see teams from Ukie’s twenty three Student institutes competing against each other to create the best game in 48 hours and win the coveted Ukie Student Game Jam trophy.

The theme of the game jam will be announced at 9:30am on Wednesday 17 May, and you’ll then have 48 hours to brainstorm, design and create your game. Entries will be judged on a number of factors, including concept, playability, narrative, creativity, and, importantly, accessibility. A full judging criteria will be released ahead of the Jam.

The Game Jam will run remotely across all our institutes' campuses and will be judged by a panel of industry judges.

We are currently looking for mentors! 

Each student team will be paired with an industry mentor who will help guide them through the process, help develop their ideas, and give advice and tips.
