The Ukie Student Game Jam is back for its sixth year! Last years Game Jam was our biggest yet with over 260 students taking part across 55 teams.
Teams of Ukie Students from institutions all across the UK will be competing for victory on 5th & 6th November by creating the best game in a 30 hour period. There will be multiple prizes with the ultimate accolade of Ukie Student Game Jam Award winner 2019 being announced following a review by industry judges.
