Rezzed to host Creative Assembly Game Jam

Four-man teams to design a game in a day, with fabulous prizes for the winners.

Brighton, UK, 4th June 2013: Gamer Network is pleased to announce that this year's Rezzed will host the first ever Creative Assembly Game Jam, where four-man development teams will compose a game in a day for a shot at winning big-value prizes provided The Creative Assembly.

This year's Rezzed takes place at The NEC, Birmingham, on 22nd/23rd June, and features a show floor full of upcoming PC titles like Total War: ROME II, as well as a packed developer sessions schedule. Tickets are on sale now at

Game Jam participants will be given a topic to work from on Saturday morning and will be expected to finish their game by the close of the show at 6pm.

Teams will then present a five-minute presentation to a panel of expert judges and a live audience in a special developer session on Sunday at 4pm, which will also be streamed live on via YouTube.

Entries will be judged Chris Avellone from Obsidian Entertainment, Ed Stern from Splash Damage and Guardian journalist Keith Stuart.

Teams hoping to take part should email by 14th June with a team name and details of those who want to take part. Organisers will notify teams being invited to take part as soon as possible.

Teams should ideally be made of four people and each participant must be free to attend Rezzed in Birmingham this month under their own steam. Organisers will supply a suitable work area on the show floor, but developers must bring their own laptops.

In addition to the Game Jam developer session on Sunday afternoon, Rezzed attendees will be able to watch sessions on Project Eternity, Dreamfall Chapters, Frozen Endzone, Prison Architect, ROME II and many others.

Playable games on the show floor include Total War: ROME II, Company of Heroes 2 and a huge range of upcoming PC and indie titles.
