The Annual Game Jam took place this weekend (22nd – 24th June) at 190 High Holborn, London, in partnership with Industry Body UKIE, Creative Assembly, Rare and 3D World Magazine.
The main skills required for success were: teamwork, creativity and endurance.

The teams were given 48 hours to create and present their game to a panel of industry judges, in order to win an exclusive prize package of:

  • An exclusive showreel clinic with Escape Studio's game tutors.
  • A Total War Saga: Thrones of Britannia game code and exclusive t-shirt.
  • An Escape Studios swag bag.

The itinerary was:

  • Friday night – the Game Jam theme was revealed as ‘Future,’ so all participants then had to come up with ideas to fit that brief.
  • Saturday – the teams worked throughout the day and night creating their game.
  • Sunday – the Game Jam ended at 3pm.The judges then deliberated and judged on the game concept, design, art, relevance to the brief and overall delivery.

They decided on a winner: 'Chrono Crack'.


The judges included:

  • Tom Constable, Seconded Level Designer at Creative Assembly, who has worked on games such as Total War, Alien Isolation and Halo Wars 2 'Awakening The Nightmare'.
  • Simon Fenton, Head of Games at Escape Studios, who has over 23 years’ experience in the games industry and has worked for the likes of Sony Computer Entertainment Europe.
  • George O’Keefe, Environment Artist at Rare Ltd and an ‘Escapee’ (Escape Studios alumni).
