Anyone participating in the Global Game Jam this weekend, or have you tried it before?  Any good tips for first-time participants this year?

 

 

I asked our Facebook followers over the weekend, and it sounds like a fair number are participating, and from sites all over the world!

I participated in GGJ.

 

I did all the programming for my team, and I learned a lot about flashpunk, AS3, the OGMO editor and 2D platformers.

 Reactions To Technologies:
1. Anything that is in the world when you’re born is normal and ordinary and is just a natural part of the way the world works.
2. Anything that's invented between when you’re fifteen and thirty-five is new and exciting and revolutionary and you can probably get a career in it.
3. Anything invented after you're thirty-five is against the natural order of things.

actually some places will just gather random ppl and the teams are made at the local based on ppl skills. you can go with a group too, but if you dont have any you will end up in some. Thats how they did it at UNISINOS on Rio Grande do Sul/Brazil.

Yeah in Melbourne, there was an IGDA-organized meet up beforehand, where everyone wore different colours depending on their skill-sets, and then organized themselves into teams for the Jam.

I participated as the youngest person in my whole jam (I'm a high school student). When it was time to present, our game ended up scaring everyone in the audience: http://globalgamejam.org/2014/games/project-funhouse

Well.. the result of our work here... 

 

I went to GGJ with no team... but I found some nice peoples to group with....

 

So.. we was a 3 programmers team.. one of US ( not me ) did the art assets, I and another one did the programming job...

 

It was amazing because we did this game in a new tool/language... A tool I dont even knew before the ggj!!

 

We did a simple game... but I am happy with the final result....

 

Take a look:

http://www.globalgamejam.org/2014/games/prinspirit -> The game

 

 

We did it using Love2d and Lua as a script language... all the process was very fun!!

 

Now I am studying the use of Shaders in Love2d...
