Rough idea of what goes on at the jam:
I take it it's not like a Game Jam though where you get a theme, so I was wondering if people typically do collabs or continue work on something they've already started or wha? I have some small game ideas I'd love to make to take a break from what I'm doing atm, or even helping people out, although I don't know how much help I could be!
Ok, so there're roughly three streams of activity going on in a jam at any point at previous tigjam uks -
1: mini-jams - we tend to have a bunch of three-hourly jams (3/4 a day), themed (pick three themes out of a hat, people can chose any of them, or none, to make a game from). Some people participate in lots of these over the course of the weekend, either alone or in collaboration. Most people won't do all of the jams, but most will participate in a few. Some will keep on working on the mini-jam games well past the 3 hours.
2: people working on pre-existing projects
3: people talking/eating/&c.
#1 has generally been the main focus of the jam. So yeah, if you have small ideas you'd like to try out, this would be a good environment in which to prototype them
