On Friday, I’ll be heading up to Derby for 48 hours, where I’ll be a judge and mentor at X48.

X48 is a 48-hour game-jam style event, where teams of students will be racing to build fully playable games on Microsoft’s XNA platform in only two days. Along with the other judges and mentors, I’ll be visiting all the teams and giving them a hand with the design side of things, as well as helping to decide on winners of the event when it wraps up on Saturday

It should be a lot of fun – I’m really looking forward to seeing what the teams come up with, and don’t entirely envy their challenge. No doubt a full report will follow in due course.
