Once again I participated in The Global Game Jam. It’s my 3rd one and once again, it was lots of fun.
This year I made a game with Paul Baker and Murray Lorden for the Global Game Jam. The topic was “What do we do now?” and we made a 2-3 player co-operative game. Players control a single ship in a retro-inspired world. Your space team needs to co-operate to avoid asteroids and save the Space Chickens from a fiery death. You can play it online here.
My main role was Art Director and Artist. I used Hexels for the first time ever and loved the aesthetic result.
This year I was also in the local Melbourne Organising Committee where I worked with volunteers and committee members and organised the Volunteer Schedule for the Melbourne event. I helped set up the event before the Jam started and not only did I get to make a game, I also had a great feeling of satisfaction from helping to make such a great event run smoothly.
