TIGJAM UK 6
Date: 17-19th February 2011
Venue: CB2 Bistro, Cambridge.

A weekend of making games, hosted by the Cambridge Friendship Club.  Everyone welcome, regardless of experience, so long as you're willing to get your hands dirty Smiley

The format of the event is usually that we have a running series of opt-in 3-hour jams all weekend.  If you want to focus on a single-project, great, if you want to spend longer extend one of these mini-jam games into something bigger, great, if you want to work on something else entirely different, great. Smiley


People will be about from 10am on the Friday, but Friday being a weekday, people will be arriving all through the day.  There are usually plenty of people hanging about for the Monday after as well

Get tickets here (£5 each):
http://tigjamuk6.eventbrite.com/

See CB2 here: http://www.cb2bistro.com/
You'll be expected to buy food and drink at the venue.

Accommodation:
The YHA hostel in cambridge is super convenient - very close to both the train station and CB2! £20.00-ish per night - we're organizing rooms on this thread:

Transport:
The event is within walking distance from Cambridge Train Station.
It's easy to get to Cambridge from Stanstead airport, and you can travel up from London Kings Cross or London Liverpool St rail station.

Any questions?  Just ask below.

Nuts - it's (predictably) hit the weekend I can't make. Cry

Oh well, hopefully there'll be one later in the year. (If possible quite a lot more notice would be nice.)

Yeah, I understand.  Sorry about that Sad.  It's hard to get things organised over xmas, but should be easier for the next one.

My friend and I only know how to use the Dragon Age: Origins toolset, we make mostly dialogue/moral-choice based games within it. Would we be welcome to come and make our games using the DA toolset or should we go learn C++? C++ looks difficult. Sad However, CB2 is a very nice pub, so, choices, choices.

Achkas: Make games however you like!  Nobody's going to judge you based on what tools you use.  I went to one of these and folk were using flash, java, gamemaker at least, but probably many others I didn't see.

(Might be able to make this, it's pretty soon after I'll have gotten back home from Bit of Alright etc., but I'll check train prices.)

If you (+ tara as well if she's down) want to stay for the interim you can rely on our futon to do so.

Hey, yeah, sure, use whatever tools you want.  Of course, this will make it harder for people to play the game, but, on the other hand, there will be plenty of people to play your game then and there Smiley  (and, don't discount the possibility of picking up some new tech on impulse over the weekend Wink ).

I know of several people in their thirties who'll be there.  Really it shouldn't matter.  You should come down.

I've never been before (and never posted here before, so hello!), but am thinking of going. I have a couple of web based games in development, both heavy on the JavaScript.

Well, I'm 34, and yeah, there's definitely been a good few others in there 30s at previous jams.

I've just booked a Travelodge room for the weekend (so I won't be subjecting other YHA-goers to my snoring this time!).

Now I just need to see if I can sort out my overheating laptop before the event Sad

Hey, this sounds pretty cool, and I was planning on visiting Cambridge this winter anyway.

I'm also 34 and mostly into coding.
