We were inspired by the simulator games of our day, some that are serious and some that are silly!
What it does
It offers you a chance to experience a hackathon without having to be in a hackathon. Time to get stressed and get silly!. You play as a hacker at the live Silly Hacks Hackathon. Walk around and check out some of the sponsors!. Take a look at what your other hackers are doing! You have full control over the character and can choose to take the opportunities to attend workshops, take a nap, or get a snack! But make sure you keep on eye on that timer! If your project isn't at least 75% done then you don't have an MVP! Let your energy run low and you will not make it till the end! Time to feel the stress of participating in a live hackathon!
