indie game jam 1

Indie Game Jam 1, the second Indie Game Jam, is underway in our barn in Oakland CA. Last year the premise was "100,000 guys"; this year the premise is Shadow Garden; Zack Simpson, the principle behind Mine Control, is open sourcing almost all of his code for us to use.

Last year, nobody got to see the games because they required a very high end machine and a copy of Doom 2 to access the sprites. This year, we're making sure all the content will be freely downloadable, but it doesn't matter, since you need an LCD projector and a camera to play the games we're working on now, and even then you really need Zack's non-open-sourced calibration code. Oops.

After IGJ1 is over, the Game Developer's Conference will follow quickly on its heels, so I won't be posting much for a while, and no audio sketchbook entry this weekend.
