For about 4 months now we’ve had the delightful visit from three interns from HTW Berlin university of applied science. They have been working on SNOT!, another one of our projects. We thought that they should end their visit with a bit of a bang, so we arranged a little in-house weekend game jam.
Everyone participated, including Linda, even though she was watching the office baby at the same time. We managed to make some nice
Get Me Out of Here
The winner of the game was without a doubt Linda, who managed to have a game up and running in GameMaker early on Saturday. Get Me Out of Here is a game where you have to clear a circle from smaller circles by connecting two at a time. When you connect two circles, they attract. It is a very simple mechanic, but it turned out to be a very challenging game. The beautiful graphics come from Thomas, of course
Thomas made a stealth-game where you play a protagonist with only a dagger as his weapon. You throw the dagger to kill the guards, but have to go pick it up before another guard sees it. Thomas also made sound and music effects for some of the other games.
Uni made a game about mining in space. You launch your space craft and it has to crash into the sun in order to disperse some minerals. You then launch another space craft to collect the minerals before your opponent reaps the benefits of your lost ship.
Gregor was working on a gravity based game, where the playing field was full of particles attracting each other, and Manuel worked on a game where two spaceships fly around a sun, shooting each other.
