SideQuest is a bi-weekly 'game jam' with themes set by real UK games studios.

A 'game jam' is when a group of people or individuals come together to create a game in a set amount of time, based on a theme. They are great at helping you quickly build up your skills and confidence in game design.

We want to help everyone to start making games and we hope by giving you access to free software, paper based protoyping tools and a community of learners, we can create a new generation of game makers.

SideQuest is run by Into Games, a non-profit organisation set up to give young people support and guidance on how to find a rewarding career in the games industry. To find out more about us and information on career pathways, visit:
