The Global Game Jam is a huge mystery to me. I just spent almost two entire days in a room full of people most of which I didn’t know, staring at the screen of my Laptop, trying not to fall off a seat which was a literal pain in the arse, battling the ever-growing sleep deficit by simply drowning it in coffee. And I really enjoyed it.
My lovely team and I even managed to make a game while staring at the ever-growing dark circles under each others eyes. It’s called “The Observer”:
It’s a game about how assuming different roles changes the way things are being seen. And how it changes what is seen at all, or what may remain invisible – because it does not seem important to the observer.
