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 27 October and 08:00 - 14:00 on Thursday 28 October 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 2021 Develop Game Jam will open in September.

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
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.
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.
One of the things I like about Develop is it brings people together from across Europe and the whole world. There is a very high level of professionals here, so you have company leaders having drinks with juniors from their community.

I’ve felt a big passion here at Develop!
I absolutely love coming to Develop, it’s a brilliant, brilliant conference – you just know you’re guaranteed to meet everyone.
Jo Twist, OBE
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.
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.
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 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!
There are many ways you can be part of Develop:Brighton - including taking a booth in the Expo or choosing one of the many sponsorship opporunities during the event or at the Star Awards.Contact us now!
