The ZX Spectrum is very dear to our hearts and to hear the spirit of the 'Speccy' is still alive and kicking in the Game Dev community is BASIC CODE MUSIC to our ears!

Speccy Jam is a 1 week game jam, where indie game devs from all over the planet come together to create speccy style games with the Sinclair ZX Spectrum being the basis of all inspiration

The video game can be developed for ANY type of platform just as long as it looks and feels like a Speccy game.
 

We love the concept and we love the speccy and we want all you Games Freezer followers to know about this great event and it would be even better if you got stuck in and produced a game!
