After launching in 2012, TIGA’s Game Hack is back in mid-November and this year it’s grown. In addition to the main event in Pinewood Studios, the 2013 event will also have a sister hack taking place in Dundee’s Abertay University.
Running overnight from the 16th – 17th of November, the Game Hack is open to students, amateur game makers and professional developers.
Teams or individuals are all welcome and while the event is free, TIGA is asking for a £5 donation from every entrant, which will go straight to the Special Effect charity. Food and drink will be provided and participants can stay overnight at both venues…
Prize categories include Best Game, Most Awesome Game, Best Endless Runner, Most Innovative Idea, Hacktacular Award and the Community Spirit award.
Here’s TIGA’s official description:
We welcome experienced individuals from studios to attend, indie developers and students developing games for the first
time. The ethos of the event is to bring together talented individuals across the UK games industry, at different stages, and showcase the fantastic talent that exists in Britain.
Register your place now for the TIGA GameHack – get your team together before the event, or book an individual place and form teams with others on the day…it’s time to get creative! There are no hard and fast rules as to who can enter – if you’re interested in any of the categories, do come along.
The TIGA GameHack is free to attend but we are asking for a charity donation of £5 to SpecialEffect. Thanks to our brilliant line-up of partners and sponsors (who will be there to help you on the day) we will provide all food and drink for the entire weekend at both locations. All participants are welcome to stay overnight at both venues.
You can find out more about the event, both venues and register for the Game Hack over on the TIGA website…
