Nnooo Sponsors Sydney’s Game Jam 2011

Monday, January 31st, 2011

Nnooo was one of the sponsors of this year’s Sydney Game Jam. Sydney’s Game Jam event is part of the Global Game Jam movement, where for 48 hours over a weekend in January, games makers, whether they are amateur or professional, form themselves into small teams to create a playable game from scratch.

It’s amazing what can be created in such a short space of time, and incredible that this happens around the world over one weekend. At the time of writing this article, over 1,400 games had been registered with the Global Game Jam site. The Nnooo team was in attendance at the Sydney event, with Steven offering help where needed and Nic a member of the judging panel. It’s a serious business making a game in 48 hours but the atmosphere is overwhelmingly one of co-operation and sharing knowledge between teams.

The picture below shows the winning team at the Sydney event, Team Inevitable whose game was called Press 3 to Breed. You can see more pictures on our Facebook site. Click here to access the album.
