Join our termly Game Jam!

The theme for Game Jam's is announced as it begins!!

My son can't get enough of these Game Jam's, it gives his summer screen time a really cool creative focus - Fran

Work with yourself or collaborate with friends to build games, every half-term!

OUR NEXT GAME JAM  STARTS MAY HALF TERM! GET INVOLVED...

The Code Zone Game Jams are essentially open coding challenges where fabulous clubbers and coders (no matter their level) can create a brand-new game all of your own based on a given theme (check out the previous game jams below!)  You need to build everything from a blank page (we have some coding skills that will help the younger ones). 

Everything is coded in a language based on your current difficulty level and we share them with everyone at the end of the challenge.  This includes the mentors of course, who LOVE taking part and are able to stretch their creativity and coding muscles.

 

We're with you all the way!

Our mentors will be online daily from 10am till 7pm, there to help you with any code advice, inspiration, or even a general chat and gif battle.

Create an account with The Code Zone, register for each event and work with our mentors each day, either via video call or through our help chat, and get involved in building this Game Jam's most epic games!

 

The online Game Jams are free to all!

If you are a member, your mentor will be online through the Game Jam to give you a hand!
