Welcome to

It is with huge regret that in light of current circumstances, we’ve decided to cancel Dare Academy 2020. With so much uncertainty, it’d be impossible to schedule the vast majority of the competition – from interviews, to securing a judging panel and particularly hothousing, a central feature to the Dare Academy competition.

Since Dare was reformatted in 2017, we’ve seen some incredible teams creating some great games and even better memories – particularly at EGX where all 18 teams have represented Abertay magnificently.

We would like to thank everybody who has been part of the competition, whether it be a participant, a judge, a mentor, a sponsor, someone who has been organising, our academic staff – a massive thank you for helping us put together an amazing competition the last 3 years.

Dare Academy will be back!
