HACKATHON

Are you ready to take on the “Hack” in DreamHack? We want to gather some of the most creative, talented, and enthusiastic designers, developers, and marketers for a 48-hour Hackathon during DreamHack Austin 2017!

A Hackathon kicks off with a mystery theme and no planning! This encourages rapid prototyping, experimentation, and innovation. Teams can be created before the event, but it is normal and expected for teams to form during the event. Interesting new ideas and humble beginnings to global blockbusters have started at GameJams and we’re excited to see what your team will create. Winning teams up to 5 people will be given prizes!

Visitor pass required to join the event, BYOC not required. Team registration available during DreamHack Austin 2017 on Friday and Saturday. Project submissions will be accepted on Sunday. Mystery theme to be announced on Friday.
