Global Game Jam

February 1, 2010

Whilst mincing around uni today it was hard not to hear about this Global Game Jam thing that went down over the weekend and, considering the size of the whole affair, I was amazed I hadn’t heard it mentioned anywhere.

Basically a bunch of universities split their students up into groups and they were challenged to make a game from scratch in just 48 hours, getting the same work to sleep ratio as a poor underpaid designer during crunch (the bit before a game is out when work is fueled by caffeine and month old chinese).

I can’t vouch for the quality of the games, I’ve only just booted the site up myself, but anyone interested in some potentially interesting Indie talent might want to give it a nosey, or anyone who needs a good laugh at some potentially horrendous games, either of those people really.
