Nordic Game Jam 2014 is a WRAP!

February 19, 2014 in Bandello, Games, Love, Nordic Game Jam, Unicorn7

After 4 years as part of the NGJ organizing team I can announce that Nordic Game Jam gets bigger and better each year! I was in charge of the program and partially sponsors and the event went smoother than ever before. All 3 talk tracks were full and got great feedback from happy speakers and attendees.

We broke our record again and had over 500 attendees and Nexus 7s to all jammers straight from Google HQ. I had a hard time keeping this secret prior to the jam since my Google Hangout with Koh back in November and the crowd went crazy, when she announced it from stage after John Polson‘s keynote.

The UnityBus/Polish Invasion was a hit and 6 of the finalist teams were invaded and I had a great time with everyone upon arrival + invasion of my home since Thursday morning. Polish your Polish.

This year’s winning game, Richard Anderson’s Putting Challenge, was developed and played on a brand new Nexus 7 live on stage and was created by half of Team Stikbold (as the other half had been send to IndieCade east to run Stikbold! as part of the eSports exhibition).

The winners are all listed here and the NGJ14 games can be found on Unicorn7 (as usual).
