Global Game Jam 09 is over

…and it has been a blast. 48 hours of game making madness around the globe. I am really looking forward to seeing how much press this event generates and to see the games that have been created. Needless to see very few will have time to play all the games that the 1500 participants worldwide has made. Here we made a massive 29 different games – and we were 150 people. A quick calculation suggests that this will result in at least 250 games made this weekend. Mind boggling. Glad I have the badge and T to show that I was in the event.

So… You are waiting to hear about our game? We went with a safe kick-ass theme: Ninjas and Zombies. You can’t really go wrong there, can you? Our game is called Dusk of Ninja and Brush and it features the last minutes of our hero Ninja while he and his friend Brush is being overrun by zombies.

Won’t go into more detail in writing, because playing says more than 1 gazillion words. But since the Unity windows beta version we used does not have the ability to publish a web player, you’ll have to wait a few days. I promise I’ll get it ready as soon as I get a capable Unity version, and I’ll post the link to the game here.
