Right now I am totally exhausted after having designed and coded in audio in the NGJ game Inglorious Skater.
There has been a lot of very interesting and funny games here at the Nordic flagship of IGDA’s Global Game Jam in Copenhagen.
There where a number of games submitted this year of which twelve went to through the first voting round:
- Disco Donkey Slaughterhouse
- Chasing Dots
- You Say Jump, I Say How High
- Grapple Grapple
- Shadow Ninja Monkey
- Find Love
- Preschool Theater Director
There where also four juror industry / research representatives that had to pick their favourites (one of them got picked twice, I think… correct me if I’m wrong)
Finally the People’s Award went to the game Only One Can Ride The Donkey.
The theme of the Global Game Jam was deception and the local constraints for GMT+1 (based on timezones) was that the games had to incorporate the words monkey, donkey, or key (I’m afraid the art of subtlety has been lost; if I hear of a game including any of those within the next year, my head is going to pop).
