End of Februari the international Global Game Jam was once again organised: teams make a game in 1 weekend, inspired by a theme. This time the theme was ‘repair’.
In Groningen this was the 5th time the event was organised. 180 participants showed up and made games. I had the honour to be one of the ‘judges’ to walk around on Sunday and offer feedback. Teams could sign up for 1 category to be reviewed in. I looked at the game design (a very broad category) and luckily had still some extra time to play the games of others. It was great to see how many games were created. And cool to see many alumni students again.
The prizes created by Ornate Design are an eye-catcher. Big shout out to the organisation, sponsors and the many volunteers that made this possible. Well done, game on!
