Global Game Jam 2012

Today I was a judge at the Pittsburgh edition of Global Game Jam. My co-judges were Rick Sebak of WQED and Joe Wos of Toonseum.

There were over a hundred jammers and 21 completed projects. All were impressive; some were amazing. Some of my favorites included Eternal Guardian, Generations, I Broke the Thing, My Life is Yours, Snakes! Snakes! Snakes!, KaChunk and Super Ouro Bros. However, the judges and jammers agreed that the hands-down favorite was HebiHanabi, a highly polished two-player snake game with a cool fighting mechanic.

Congratulations to all the jammers, worldwide!
