Global Game Jam 2014 is over!
Hello! I’m Nicha and I’ll be your VFS Game Jam Reporter! I’m going to showcase all of the work by the VFS students and the alumni team! :3
There were 4 groups jammin’ in the global event this year!
The theme of Global Game Jam 2014 was…
“We don’t see things as they are, we see them as we are.”
This past weekend, around 15,00 people gathered around the world for the Global Game Jam with one simple purpose: Create a game in less than 48 hours. This kind of rapid development is the essence of the different game jam events around the world, like Ludum Dare, the Nordic Game Jam, the Toronto Game Jam (aka T.O.Jam) and VFS’s very own 2Jam.
What is a Global Game Jam?
You might think, “Ok, got it — a game jam is something like a game making marathon.” And you’d be right to think that, but you’d also be wrong. Sorry. A game jam is not only a game making marathon — it’s also a great chance to network with industry professionals and celebrate a common interest: game design.
