Rules

Matchmaking

Still missing that special someone on your team that can make you feel all warm and fuzzy inside (or at least turn your pixel-poop into something you might dare to call "art" when nobody is listening?).

Show up at 14:00 on Friday the 24th, or chip an email to jwringstad@gmail.com

Free Unity Pro licenses

In addition to sponsoring us a Unity Pro license to give away as a prize, Unity Technologies also offers free timed licenses to all participants, for use during the gamejam. We will be giving these licenses out during the jam, but if you want to get set up beforehand, feel free to shoot me an email.

Free Unreal Engine 4 licenses

We also offer free UE4 licenses, but we have a limited number and can only offer these to registered students of the University of Oslo. Once all licenses are given away, this message will be removed -- so shoot me a mail if you want one.

Pizza, coffee & other foods

Free pizza will be served Sunday afternoon. Please inform us beforehand if you've got any specific dietary needs.

Free coffee will of course be available at all times.
