Flappy Bird - Python Game ReDesign 2-Day Hackathon

Organized by Hackleto
From Dec 7th 2018
To Dec 8th 2018
See the website


Flappy Bird is a great game, but it’s a bit old.  Together, we are going to create new spins on that addictive game.

We will start with Flappy Bird as a base.  Then fork from there as we brainstorm new ideas together.

Here’s the format…

We will arrive at Cross Campus at 6PM, December 7th

Meet, Greet & Eat

Then we will start brainstorming improvements to the game

We will post those on a big board

You will then join the idea you want to create, thereby forming a team

You will then get with your team, plan the build, and get to typing

You can stay as late as you want/need (Cross Campus has showers)

We will pause periodically during the hack-a-thon to review each other's work

At 4PM the next day, (Dec 8th) we will stop, show our work, distribute them for play, and celebrate our collective awesomeness!  


WHEN | December 7 from 6PM to December 8th, at 6PM

WHERE | TBD but likely Culver City or Santa Monica
