Weekend Reading (and Watching): Pirate Jam

Recommended Posts

Vice's Motherboard posted a story on Friday entitled Game Developers Sail, Swim, and Code at 'Pirate Jam', chronicling the story of American McGee and his fellow developers as they embarked on a 7 day, 5 hour per day game jam of sailing, fishing, diving, and development on the Andaman Sea west of Thailand.

From the story:

A game jam is a social get-together, where developers create several, themed games within a short time frame. But whereas other game jams are intense, all-encompassing work sessions that last a day or three, Pirate Jam was seven days of sailing and adventuring around Thailand. The developers worked only five hours per day, usually in the local establishments at ports of call, on game engine Unity, which also sponsored the jam.

The Pirate Jam also has a website at http://pirate-jam.com/ with more information. Also check out the videos below.
