One more Game Jam weekend is behind us now. 48 hours of craziness, hard work, and lack of sleep… For what it is worth, all the teams had great fun and developed amazing games in a short amount of time. We had four teams created four great games:
Plaque Attack – A 2D multiplayer brick-breaking game where players have to work together to clear out different colors of plaque from an artery in order to prevent an heart attack.
The Green Dungeon – A text-based digital game where players escape from a dungeon by correctly answering questions on conservation and sustainability.
Night Hunt – A table-top game where players travel through a darkened city collecting pieces to build one of two ultimate artifacts without getting noticed by the monsters.
Mad Geneticists – A table-top game where players build new creatures and pitting them against each other so that the strongest survive.
Playable version of each game can be downloaded from the Global Game Jam site.
We had great a weekend and looking forward to the next year. To sum it all up, here is a video created by one of our Newhouse students, Maya Gao Quin.
