Developers flock to AIE for Global Game Jam 2014
Developers flock to AIE for Global Game Jam 201407-Feb-2014 Game Jams challenge game developers to make a game from start to finish in only 48 hours. At the start of the challenge the devs are provided with the theme that their game must be based on.
During the recent Global Game Jam a record number of developers from all over the world spent 48 hours creating a game based on the theme: “We don’t see things as they are, We see them as we are.”
Jam locations were held at the Sydney, Canberra, Melbourne, Seattle and Lafayette campuses. Over 500 developers at the AIE campuses created more than 110 games.
AIE students made a big impact during the jam. Locations that hosted awards such as the Sydney saw AIE Graduates take home some of the top prizes.
AIE Grad Dean Hickey received the award for Best Game for Super Puppet Master. Fellow AIE Grad Matt Cabanang’s team won the Technical Excellence Award for their game Homeless.
