Back in 2012 Ukie hosted a rather special game jam. Named 'Journo/Dev Swap', it challenged game press to step up as developers, while game devs attended to cover the jam as press. Well; after a long wait the Journo/Dev Swap game jam is back.
We've partnered with Alzheimer's Research UK to make the 2019 jam possible. They are on board as our sponsor, will provide the theme to inspire our jammers, and are continuing to explore the ways in which games can be embraced so as to engage and educate millions of people, or even be a tool to contribute to research into dementia.
The jam hours are as follows:
Friday, September 27th – 1PM-6PM
Saturday, September 28th – 9AM-7PM
Sunday, September 29th – 9AM-4PM
The jam will take place in the Ukie office here in London. We encourage developers and press to turn up throughout the day to show their support.
To get involved speak to Will Freeman who is coordinating this event with Ukie.
