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.

There’s something creative about Brighton, so it’s the perfect place to have the conference.
Develop always gets put in the diary. There are many reasons to be here, not just the talks, but the networking, people exchanging ideas about where the industry is right now and where it’s going to. It’s pretty essential to be here I think.

I’ve felt a big passion here at Develop!
Develop:Brighton is especially unique - it’s by the seaside and there’s a lovely relaxed tone that goes with that.The talks are cool, the networking is cool and having the opportunity to catch up with people – that’s always the excitement for me!
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.
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.
It’s really nice to see some of the younger people in our studio come to Develop, interact with other people in the dev community and make new contacts. I think it’s really important to learn from other people.
Develop is important – the networking is very important. And go to talks they’re inspiring and get your creative juices flowing, they can make you think and you’ll learn how other people do things.
Develop is a really great way to network, it’s also great for going to talks and finding that little tip that you didn’t know before and thinking – oh I’ll bring that back to the team!
I really like Develop, I really like the intimacy of it and I love the location.. there’s a good diversity of talks going on so there hasn’t been a time when there’s nothing I want to see.
There are many ways you can be part of Develop:Brighton 2020 - including speaking in the conference, taking a booth in the Expo or becoming a sponsor.Find out more
