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 10:00 - 00:00 on Wednesday 15, and 08:00 - 14:00 on Thursday 16 July in Room 8. Attendees will need to bring their own computers, but power, internet and refreshments during the Jam opening hours will be provided.
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.
Registration for the 2020 Develop Game Jam will open in June.
Develop:Brighton brings together the game dev community to share ideas, learn and be inspired by each other. So if you have an idea for a conference session we'd love to hear it. Hurry - the deadline for submissions is 19 February!find out more
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.
Ian Livingstone, CBE
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.
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 the must-attend event for the games industry in the UK. It’s where we all come together and learn from each other. It’s the best way into the industry and it’s the best place to learn from your colleagues.
I absolutely love coming to Develop, it’s a brilliant, brilliant conference – you just know you’re guaranteed to meet everyone.
Jo Twist, OBE
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.
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:Brighton’s a great conference. It’s got a spread of people from all parts of the games industry talking about such a wide range of topics.
Develop is an excellent way of catching up with people – there’s a really nice community feel here.
Mike Bithell Games
By coming to Develop what you get is the opportunity to network like you can’t in any other situation. Everyone knows everyone and it’s such a wonderful community feel.
