What's it all about?

Do you know how to program? Do you do graphics? Do you think you can come up with your own computer game? If you answered yes to these questions and you are up for a challenge, try to put your own team together and come up with a game within 48 hours. Topics will be revealed on the spot.

What's in it for me?

All participants will be provided with and have unlimited access to their own working space throughout the challenge. There will also be a chillout zone and coffee shop. As part of the registration fee each participant will be granted their own seating spot, provided with 3 sockets; wifi access (by Rainside, s.r.o) and snacks and beverages. There will be open access to the building at all times with the possibility to spend the night at the site as well.
