Something has happened in Melbourne. A mysterious Incident, with intriguing details and qualities the likes of which irresistibly compel you to make a game about it. To find out more about this Incident, come along to this esoteric game jam hosted by game maker and writer Cecile Richard. Note that while the theme may seem like it lends itself more to narrative games, you really can make whatever type of game you want, as long as it's about... the Incident. Coding experience useful but not obligatory for participation.

Note: Participants must bring their own laptops.
