Students studying on the Level 4 Games Development course at East Norfolk Sixth Form College, took part in a nationwide game jam against other universities across the entire UK.

380 students, across 80 teams took part with students from over 20 educational institutions from Scotland, England, Wales and Northern Ireland.

The jam – which took place on the 5-6 November across the length and breadth of the country - tasked Ukie’s student game jammers with creating compelling games to raise awareness of key climate issues amongst players.

East Norfolk won the social champions award thanks to some truly entertaining content from team Joe, Joe & Co. They kept engaged with other teams through likes, comments and retweets. The purpose of the award is to make the competition a collective event, which they truly encompassed. As a reward, they have been given a prize of free tickets for Zero Latency VR in Wembley.

Course Leader at East Norfolk Sixth Form College, Demetrios Symeou said “The event was fantastic and our students on the Level 4 Games Development course were able to create some excellent games in such a short space of time, they also worked closely with mentors and CEO’s from game development companies from around the UK. This kind of experience is invaluable to building the students links into the Games Industry and also building on their confidence in the field.”
