Game Jam

dBs Manchester Summer Series

August 22, 2024 10:00 AM

What to expect

Join us for an inclusive and highly-interactive Games Jam. Collaborating with others, we'll have an abundance of pre-made assets for you to use to craft a wholly original game experience, or if you're more experienced, you can dive into the deep end and create your own game from scratch.

You're welcome to bring your own laptops, but we have a suite of high-spec gaming PCs available should you not have your own laptop or would like to take advantage of a super powerful rig.

This day is open to anyone with a passion for games, be that video or board games. You do not need to have any pre-existing skills in game art, programming and music composition.

Travelling by car and parking

We can be easily reached by car, however there is no on-street parking by our centre. The car park linked to the Arndale Centre is a short walk away, and there are plenty of smaller car parks within walking distance of us.

Travelling by public transport

We’re less than a 5-minute walk from Manchester Victoria train station and a 20-minute walk from Manchester Piccadilly train station. The Manchester tram service runs from Picaddilly to Shudehill every 12-minutes and will get you to within a couple of minutes walk from our campus. 

If you’re travelling by coach, e.g. National Express, we’re a 20-minute walk from the Manchester coach station.
