Global Game Jam 2016: The Aftermath

This year’s Global Game Jam weekend exceeded our expectations once more! Congratulations again to the winning teams behind Digimancers, Witches Brew and 7 – respectively placing 1st, 2nd and 3rd in our local #GGJ16 Belfast competition, with a special mention from the judges for the beautiful The Path.

The photos from the event are available here; even if you weren’t able to catch our global live-stream over the weekend (including a brief 1 hour stint as the main world-wide Global Game Jam stream on Friday night!) you can get a flavour of the effort put in all weekend by our jammers.

Do download and check out all 12 of our Belfast jam entries from the weekend over at Farset’s Global Game Jam page, as there is brilliant local creativity, artistry, and a bit of insane genius on show – bending this year’s theme of ‘Ritual’ to our participants’ will (and/or breaking point)!

Thank you: to all of our brilliant jammers for putting their talent out there; to Northern Ireland Screen for their continued support; and to our brilliant judges for taking the time to understand and appreciate each game produced this weekend 🙂
