UK Games Talent and Finance has today launched a new offering in the suite of programmes designed to bolster support for the UK’s early stage games development sector – Jamfuser.
Jamfuser is a new game jam aimed primarily at would-be Tranzfuser 2019 applicants. Scheduled to take place in March, the 72 hour game jam will run online and encourages teams to come together (whether remotely or not) to produce a playable demo in just 3 days. Jamfuser organisers will put a selection of themes around which the game jam will be based out to vote amongst teams that have registered to take part.
Now in it’s fourth year, Tranzfuser has established a sizeable and engaged community of video games development professionals, some of whom will be recruited as mentors for the teams enrolled in Jamfuser.
Deborah Farley, Head of Talent and Outreach at UKGTF, said:
“Tranzfuser 2019 will be our fourth iteration of the competition. After every cycle, we look at ways to invigorate and improve our offering to the next batch of Tranzfuser applicants. The idea behind running a game jam actually came from a member of our Tranzfuser alumni so we knew we were on to a winner!
This is new territory for us but we’re working with the experts to make sure it’s an exciting and authentic taster for potential Tranzfuser applicants.”
