The set up!
The Scottish Game Jam 2014

We’ll be updating this post over the weekend with pictures, videos, information and more. Check back often!

The Glasgow part of the jam will be taking place at Glasgow Caledonian University’s modern and well equipped Saltire Centre building. The event has become a marquee event in the Scottish Games Development community.

This year we are providing prizes for the competition including games, T-shirts and other promotional material. We will be podcasting from the event and streaming live video footage as well. When we did this last year, it attracted well over two thousand views a day, but with more than 200 competitors in Glasgow alone, we expect far, far more this year. Oh, and we will be running a Nidhogg tournament too!
