SPIL Games and Google will be running an HTML5 Game Jam event on both sides of the Atlantic, which runs from Saturday October 9th, 10am to Sunday October 10th, 6pm. "In Netherlands, we'll be hosting a sleepover event at Hilversum headquarters of SPIL Games. SPIL recently converted their 47 mobile portals to work on mobile HTML5, and is running a $50,000 HTML5 games contest. Participants will be able to sleep over on-site. Meanwhile, we'll be running a parallel event at Google's office in downtown San Francisco, and the doors remain open till midnight.

We'all kick off with short talks on the technology, followed by pitches from anyone with ideas on a great game. Then it'll be hacking all day. We'll pick up again on Sunday at 10am, and wrap up at 6pm with presentations and judging. There'll also be chillout areas with games and diversions, and food and drinks to fuel your frenetic hacking," informs Google.
