GOVR cafe and Maf’j Alvarez of Root Interactive are hosting a weekend-long live hackathon bringing developers, designers and artists from across the land to create an unapologetically all-out nappy-slinging world domination war game that brings out the egotistical power-hungry toddler in all of us.

‘Power Babies VR’ will be showcased at the cafe during the Brighton Digital Festival in October.

Audience weekend pass - no coding required!

We’re inviting people to be a part of the hackathon this weekend. As an audience participant, you’ll get to meet the developers, pitch ideas, test game features and mechanics and get a first look at the final outcome of the hackathon. You’ll also get a 15% discount off of your ticket to the official showcasing of ‘Power Babies VR’ during the Brighton Digital Festival this October.

Please note that hackathons involve a lot of improvisation, adaptation to developments on the day and progress through trial and error. As an audience member, you will get access to and participate in a work-in-progress, not a final product. The features and mechanics you will get to test may not be fully developed.
