Introducing 1Up Game Jam

We sponsored The University of Birmingham’s Games Development Society’s charity game jam 1Up, where 30 students created 4 games within just 48 hours.


Students were split into teams for the game jam and given a theme of Day and Night. Alongside creating their games, the event featured break activities like creating a voice-over trailer and a guess the game challenge, which gave students the chance to win games.

Submitted games included an alien top-down shooter and a VR game, with the top-down shooter Power Defence taking home the winning title and £40 Steam credit as a prize.

“It was an awesome 48-hour jam and we’re very lucky to have the support of all those involved”, says the event committee.

Well done to everyone involved!
