S.W.A.C.K.! - Global Game Jam 2020

This year I attended again the Global Game Jam. This time I was part of the Guildford venue, kindly offered by Wargaming and organized by Jon Kelliher, in the UK.

What's the Global Game Jam?

"Innovation - Experimentation - Collaboration

The Global Game Jam® (GGJ) is the world's largest game jam event (game creation) taking place around the world at physical locations. Think of it as a hackathon focused on game development. It is the growth of an idea that in today’s heavily connected world, we could come together, be creative, share experiences and express ourselves in a multitude of ways using video games – it is very universal. The weekend stirs a global creative buzz in games, while at the same time exploring the process of development, be it programming, iterative design, narrative exploration or artistic expression. It is all condensed into a 48-hour development cycle. The GGJ encourages people with all kinds of backgrounds to participate and contribute to this global spread of game development and creativity."

It was amazing! The reception was incredible, people fun and so talented and everyone managed to present its own working game at the end of it.

So we had a great time. 

And I have had the luck of being part of a fantastic team of developers so, without further ado... Here's our game! :D (And following this link you can download and play it and find all the information about the game itself and my team members names and contact <3)
