One weekend, 169 game developers, 14 helpers and a heap of pizza, burgers, caffeine, fruit and lollypops (thanks to fantastic sponsors) resulted in 51 games! That was Melbourne Global Game Jam 2014 in a nutshell.
Whilst we try to race through and play as many games as possible on Sunday afternoon, there’s not a lot of sleep in the game jam equation, so we will be getting all the games together in one room for our Play Party and Awards night.
When: Tuesday 18 Febraury from 6pm-10pm
Where: The Arcade, Level 1 – 71-75 City Road, Southbank (just across the river from Flinders Street Station)
Along with a chance to play all the games, the Tasters’ Notes will be in and Awards will be given. Thanks to PAX Australia the developers of the tastiest game will score themselves three day passes to PAX Australia in October. We’ll also have prizes from Ubisoft (and anywhere else we manage to score some swag from) for:
Most Original Game Concept Best Art Most Accessible Game Best Audio Best Interpretation of the Theme and Jammers’ Choice.
Please RSVP via the Facebook event (https://www NULL.facebook NULL.com/events/570760543011678/)to ensure we have enough space and loo paper. While meals won’t be available onsite, there’s a great pizza place a few doors up and we’ll have menus available if you’re hungry. (I’d highly recommend ordering pizza with them, rather than eating the menus themselves.)
Jammers should have received details on how to vote for their favourite game – will this be the first time the Tasters and the Jammers disagree? You’ll have to wait and see.
All enquiries about the event should be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org
