Battle of Games Hackfest | Quick Left

We’ve done a beerfest hackfest, biking hackfest, lock-picking hackfest, but now it is time….time to bust out your best hacked-together code with your maze-solving, token gathering, and weapon making skills. Why? Because we’re kicking off Boulder Startup Week with our Battle of the Games hackfest! You can make your own adventure text game, table-top game, a MMOG, a badass MUD game (but be prepared for mockery), or even board game. WE WANT ALL THE THINGS (in three hours or less).

Don’t code? Don’t worry. We will have all the classic games in the house for you to get your Donkey Kong, Contra, and Battletoads fix. We’re featuring original NES, Super Nintendo, Game Boy, and more consoles to battle it out in your own competition. Beer, food and prizes provided by our generous sponsors so stay for the end when teams formed the night-of will present their project after only three hours of hacking. First 20 teams who use SparkFun’s MaKey MaKeys with their application will go home with a FREE one.

You know the deets by now: doors open at 6pm, hacking begins at 6:30pm, presentations at 9:30, lights out by 10pm. No previous feature design and all code must be written night of.
