Indie Games Room Report

31 July 2015

Header image for Indie Games Room Report

It's been a little while now since AVCon, I hope you all had a great time! We really enjoyed showing off some games from past jams, and we hope you enjoyed playing them! All the games from these past jams are Spotlighted in the games list (so if you're on desktop, you can see one of them at the bottom of the left sidebar right now!), but if you're too keen to scroll over there, they're listed here as well!

  • Rocket Reaction by Damon Pearce and Dan Beaumont was a multiplayer favourite at the Indie Games Room this year. This game was made for Adelaide Game Jam 2014 and features free-floating action (and deadly spikes).
  • updownleftright by Andrew Dunn is a game made for Global Game Jam 2015 about rescuing astronauts and avoiding space debris.
  • Freeze Ray by Robert Reed with Colin Capurso is a game about a mad scientist trying to escape his lab. This game and...
  • Cosplay Chase by Finn Stokes were both made for Ludum Dare 32.
  • Boxed In was made by Dylan Browne at Adelaide Game Jam 2014. If you dig the idea of playing as a cardboard box escaping from a cardboard box factory, this one is for you! Recently, there's even an Android version on Google Play if you want to be able to play anywhere at any time.

These were our featured games, but we also showed off a few older games. If you're looking for multi-player cooperation or competition, previous Adelaide Game Jams have you covered. If you're inspired to make a game, Adelaide Game Jam 2015 is coming up at the end of the month and we'd love to see you there!

GGJ 2015 Wrap-up

30 January 2015

It's been a week since Global Game Jam, and everytime we have to ask ourselves what to do now, we'll remember our great weekend! Winners for our jam site were announced on Sunday afternoon, but here they are again for your viewing pleasure:

  • Patrick with "Alien Evolution", a great little game about what to do when you come to conquer a planet but here's nothing there to conquer.
  • Andrada, Ben, Henry, Kathy and Phil with "Two Keys", a multiplayer game with awesome voice acting and far too many zombies for your computer to handle.
  • Andrew with "UpDownLeftRight", a game about rescuing astronauts and flying into asteroids, written entirely left handed.

Thankyou to everyone who came along, it was an awesome weekend because you helped to make it that way! You can play ALL the games from our site on the Global Game Jam website, and we'll be hosting slightly-more-complete versions of most games on our website in the next couple of weeks.
