Abertay University is set to host a video game competition.

Participants of the TIGA GameHack event will have just 24 hours to create a game.

The event in November is set to challenge some of the best and brightest in the games industry.

Participants can put entries in for more than five categories, with cash prizes and more available to winners at the event.

The university will host a series of sessions prior to the event, which participants will be invited to attend.

TIGA chief executive Dr Richard Wilson said: "The TIGA GameHack in Scotland will provide the hugely important Scottish academic and game development community with the perfect opportunity to learn, experiment, network and collaborate creatively.

"We hope all our Scottish student, developer and digital publisher members will seize this chance to come together and create something truly special in just 24 hours."

Ryan Locke, lecturer in media design at Abertay University, added: "This will give our students and Scottish developers the chance to experience a genuine thrill, as well as providing valuable networking opportunities and a creatively stimulating environment."

The competition is now open for registration for Abertay students and Scottish developers.
