The 2012 Game Jam has begun. To our game enthusiasts, the Global Game Jam is probably a familiar topic. But, if you’re not in the know, a Game Jam is a 48 hour ‘competition’ in which teams take a topic and try to make a game out of it. It’s a fun way for developers to dust off their rapid prototyping skills and jump into the fray for some good ol’ fashioned crunch time panic!
We, of course, couldn’t pass up the opportunity. SmugBee Games will be at the Philadelphia GGJ site partying it up the only way nerds can…by pumping our bodies with greasy food, quaffing borderline illegal energy beverages, and staring at computer screens until our eyes are burned out of our heads. So, if you’re in the area, stop on by and say hello and check out what we’re working on. If you can’t make it, have no fear. We’ll be posting our 48 hour product to the SmugBee website once the competition is over.
To all our fellow developers taking part in the GGJ around the world, we salute you and wish you the best of luck.
Break out your crackers and spoons. Its time to jam!
