The Terrible Ideas Hackathon

Against all good judgement and laws of humanity, the Terrible Ideas Hackathon is BACK for 2023… AGAIN! From the 8th to the 10th of December, we’ll be invading Unleash Space and making a whole bunch of dumb stuff. However, we aren’t just taking over Tāmaki Makaurau, but THE WHOLE WORLD! By which, we mean London, Sydney, and Whangārei. Nothing can stop us (except like, a dragon probably.)

In case you forgot (or have tried to repress all the memories of the hackathon back in March), here’s a recap: The Terrible Ideas Hackathon is a two day event challenging you to take the worst ideas from the crevices of your mind and bringing them to reality. This can be ANYTHING - from a browser game where you have to guide a gritty, badass peach dad to save his peach wife and peach kid from peach criminals, to a musical about your favourite bus route. If the idea sucks, we want to see it happen.

And the best part is, we have NO MONEY LEFT! That’s right baby, it’s a no-budget hackathon where you have nothing but your brain, and whatever's laying about at Unleash, your flat, and your laptop. Sound hard? It is! But that’s what’s gonna make this a fun one.

Registrations are NOW OPEN! Go do that here:

See you there, or else!
