Quick Left Hackfest (BSW)

May 12, 2014
12:00pm - 4:00pm

We’ve done a beerfest hackfest, biking hackfest, lockpicking hackfest, now it is time to bust out your best maze-solving, token gathering, weapon making skills, because it's time to kick 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!





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. You would all starve and be very dehydrated if it weren't for JP Morgan Chase & Co, so be sure to thank them when you are chowin' down.


Hint: Our sponsor Occipital likes 3d mapping ideas and is giving out a Structure Sensor to the winning team!


Those participating in the Boulder Startup Crawl be sure to stop by and get some food, beer, and try your hand at all the retro games your heart desires.
