48-hour game jam begins on February 6th

UK developers Team17, Bossa Studios and Future Games of London have come together to form The Great British Game Jam.

The 48-hour game jam will take place on February 6th and 7th, with the event's theme to be revealed to the teams on the first day by game industry trade body UKIE.

The results of the jam will be shared by 10am on February 11th.

"The monthly Game Jams at Bossa Studios are a treasure trove of creativity," said Bossa Studios creator-in-chief Imre Jele.

"With over 50 prototypes created these events provide us with an invaluable opportunity to explore novel game ideas and to improve our skills to craft immersive and surprising games. We are very excited to share that experience with other great developers during the Great British Game Jam."

Team17 MD Debbie Bestwick added: "I am delighted for Team17 to be involved in the Great British Game Jam. The intensity of pitting creativity and rapid prototyping against the clock can have exciting and unexpected results. I’m eager to see what the event delivers.”
