Pixel Jam 2014 happened! We got together on the 12th of September to have a crack at making a whole video game in just 48 hours.


Pixel Jam is open to anyone who wants to test their mettle by getting just a weekend to put together a whole video game. You can enter as an individual or as a team, and you'll need be able to build the design, code and art all in the 48 hours you're given.

The competition begins at 6:00 PM on Friday the 12th of September at Victoria University in Wellington, and will end at 6:00 PM the following Sunday. There'll be a common theme that everyone has to build their game around, but otherwise there's no limits to what you can make: 2D, 3D, FPS or RPG, it's all open.

There'll be an entry fee of $30, and we supply T-shirts and some food. And there are prizes up for grabs! With judges from the local game development industry it's also a great way to get yourself out there and get recognised.
