A quick message from Sean Oxspring:

God games are cool. They're one of my favourite types of game.The events of recent days have broken my heart. So it's my plan to show off that this genre can be amazing and cool and awesome, and that you can make some excellent god games in 24 hours!
According to Wikipedia, home of the combined knowledge of all mankind, "A god game is an artificial life game that casts the player in the position of controlling the game on a large scale, as an entity with divine/supernatural powers, as a great leader, or with no specified character (as in Spore), and places them in charge of a game setting containing autonomous characters to guard and influence."
Please join me on the weekend starting the 21st of February to make something cool, something godly, something that can truly show how fun a god game can be!

Come join us at The University Of Lincoln to make some great god games in 24 hours! (If you can't make it to the main event then feel free to work on a game at home and submit it to the jam page on

We are afraid that this event if for 18s and over, sorry! You can form teams of up to five people!
