Last December Chris tried peer pressuring me into doing this Global Game Jam nonsense.
“Come on Bryson, you wanna be cool don’t you?” -Christopher J. Rock
While I always feel obligated to elevate my coolness, I resisted. At the time I wasn’t interested because I felt that I needed to give love to my elusive Donut project. As January 29th approached I realized that the Game Jam is something I needed to do. After attending the Game Developer’s Conference and Indicade it’s become ever-so apparent to me that connecting with others within the same community builds deep bonds. And it dawned on me.
Independent game developers need a spot where we can kick it. A spot where we belong. Where we don’t have to get all dressed up and be Hollywood.
Something similar to a Thugz Mansion, but for game developers. Global Game Jam is our Thugz Mansion.
