It’s a brand new week — how is everyone doing?
While there are plenty of conventions that Rachel and I have heard of, we recently just heard of something called the Global Game Jam. It sounds like an awesome competition!
We’ve showcased String Player Gamer on this blog before, as we really enjoy his music and covers of video game tunes. A couple of days ago he posted a video on YouTube titled, “I made a video game!”
Rachel and I love hearing about indie games, especially ones from brand new creators trying their hand at making a game for the first time. Apparently, that’s exactly what Global Game Jam is. Applicants from all over meet and have about two days to create a game from scratch in teams, each bringing their skills to help create different aspects of the game.
It’s pretty damn cool! Who knows — maybe Rachel and I will be part of something like this one day! Both of us would like to help with storytelling, Rachel would be fantastic with voice acting, and I may be able to whip up some programming for a game. It’s something for the bucket list, anyway!
