HackTheMidlands is a yearly hackathon hosted in the UK, we've been running this event for free since 2015, with the sole focus on supporting creation. We want to help you to get inspired, to work with other passionate people, and to have fun doing it.
While the prevelence of COVID-19 means we won't be running in person this year, we're experimenting with a fully virtual event, complete with a brand new Game Development track, alongside GameDevNetwork.
Q: What game engine can I use?
Q: Can I use assets?
A: Feel free to use any FREE publically available assets, though please disclose the source!

Want to find a team? We have a few ways to help you get started!
For this event, GameDevNetwork is trialing a brand new way to find teams, handled entirely via Discord!
The HackTheMidlands Discord server will be hosting two channels for finding teams:
#looking-for-members: If you already have a team, and are looking for additional members.
#looking-for-team: If you don't have a team already, consider joining one currently forming!
SuPRIZE! In addition to some of our coolest holographic gamedev stickers / GDN pins, we'll be awarding the winning team with a super special mystery prize 👀
While we will be offering a few prizes for the jam, the focus of HackTheMidlands is having fun with your project!
Our aim is to make HTM as fun for as many participants as possible 💓
