Following previous years' great success, we’re bringing back the Develop Game Jam! Taking place on Wednesday 11 and Thursday 12 July, the Develop Game Jam welcomes all levels of developer, from beginners to professionals.
Teams of one to four people are welcome, regardless of experience. There will be a theme, revealed to participants twenty-four hours beforehand. Industry mentors will visit during the jam to discuss projects and give advice, and teams will also be fed. The Jam will finish with presentations and prizes.
The Develop Game Jam will run from 12:00 - 00:00 on Wednesday 11, and 08:00 - 14:00 on Thursday 12 July in Room 7. Attendees will need to bring their own computers, but power, internet and refreshments during the Jam opening hours will be provided.
Want to take part? Tickets are free, but there are only thirty places and you must register to secure yours. You don't need to register separately for a Develop:Brighton pass unless you want to attend conference sessions in which case you'll need to buy a conference pass separately.

Building games is hard and it’s taxing physically, mentally and emotionally. So being around a community that understands that is great – there’s a comraderie here.
Develop is an excellent way of catching up with people – there’s a really nice community feel here.

There really is a huge mix of people at Develop - loads of peers that you can learn from and the perfect blend of every element of game development as well.
I’ve felt a big passion here at Develop!
There’s really something for everyone at Develop and the experience of being around like-minded people is really useful.
Develop is a very important place – it’s one of the few developer focussed conferences we have in Europe and that makes it very valuable.
If you really want to have a good interface with the British game developer community then this is the place to come.
I’ve been to every single Develop in the last 12 years. One thing you get here is networking - you will meet the most amazing individuals in the video games industry.
A lot of the opportunities that come from being here are speaking to other developers who are doing exactly the same thing as you. And there are some good parties – it’s very much a pleasurable work experience!
We are so lucky to have Develop here in the UK. It’s a unique event where you can come and discover new things with people who care passionately about video games. It’s a sea full of new ideas.
There are many ways you can be part of Develop:Brighton 2018 - including speaking in the conference, taking a booth in the Expo or becoming a sponsor.Find out more
