A weekend of game-making glory

PixelJam is a 24-hour game development event run at University College London. Here you'll be given all the workshops, tools, mentors and snacks you'll need to create the game of your dreams! These kind of events are known as game jams, and are a great opportunity to come together with like-minded gamedev enthusiasts and bring your game ideas to life over a weekend.
