It’s on!

Global game jam is officially started! This is one of the high lights of the year for me. It’s obviously extra fun when you are also an organizer and feel fairly well prepared.

The preparation of the venue and the opening ceremony went really well. I had an idea for what I wanted to explore during the jam, but I kept an open mind until I got to hear about this years theme. As an organizer, you get to learn the theme ahead of others, so while I could confirm that my idea would work I could obviously not tell anyone about it until it was official.

The theme will remain secret until tomorrow when it’s reached all time zones across the Earth. Nevertheless, I’d like to share my team’s progress. I think this image is vague enough…
