Glasgow Caledonian University is the host centre for Scotland's participation in this weekend's Global Games Jam. If you're familiar with the Dundee Games Jam, this then is very similar - only bigger.
If you haven't come across a games jam before, it challenges developers (artists, programmers, designers and so on) to create a working game in a very short space of time. Typically one or two days.
The 2009 global games jam starts on January 30th (Friday evening) and runs through till Sunday afternoon on February 1st.
There are over 70 locations around the world participating in this competition and there are prizes galore. For the Scottish competition Denki, Realtime Worlds and Firebrand have agreed to judge and, in some cases, provide prizes.
There's still time to regsiter and take part. While Glasgow Caledonian does have equipment there, you can bring your own (and they encourage you to do so).
This is an event with some serious indie-cred chops and it looks like it may well spawn a number of new games.
