Over the course of a weekend, individuals or teams will be challenged to produce a working game or protype based on anything on their choosing. You can use any framework, engine or hardware that you like.
We're up for any genre you like, as long as it's not offensive. Awards will be given to the most creative and awesome projects.
We'll be presenting awards to the games that we believe are the best or most awesome. We're not looking for an amazing game, but we're looking for how you've made the game, if it's fun to play and anything innovative you've done.
As well as the standard "Best in show" awards, judges will also be looking to award strange and new ideas in made up categories, some suggested ones are listed below
Within reason, you can use any language, game engine or framework you like to build your prototype, you can also built it for any platform or input method (Kinect, Playstation Move, Wii Remote, Balance Board, etc) you like as long as you can demonstrate it. Your project could be to make a new game using an engine, or to make a mod or plugin for an existing game.
You can choose any genre, storyline or game art as long as it isn't offensive or illegal.

Nope! If it's interactive and entertaining or is in some way related, it's allowed. We encourage making something different and crazy, remember we're the kind of people who fly AR.Drones with bananas!
