The Game Jam

I have just posted my registration for the University of Waikato's Global Game Jam session, a 48 hour Pizza and Coke fueled game development marathon and part of a World Wide Game Design competition.

I'll be attending with one other person from Auckland Game Works, hopefully we can convince more people to come along. If other Aucklanders attend, maybe we could convince them to give AGW a look. I already have a cool idea for a game in mind, but I can only wait and see if the rest of the team is interested.

This will be the first time I have ever worked on and released a game within such a short time frame, the closest was Blow Stuff Up which was just under a week (Firestart was 10 weeks, The Kiwi's Tale was about 13 weeks and Derelict was 9 months!).

The Game Jam runs from 5PM on Friday the 30th Jan to 5PM on Sunday the 1st Feb. If they have Internet available there I'll try to keep the blog updated during breaks.

Sounds awesome. It's always great building something in a small space of time. You end up with sometimes amazing things that you would never have created otherwise.

Good luck - and I look forward to seeing the results!
