Global Game Jam

Global Game Jam in Seattle

Last weekend the global game jam took the world by storm, and we stopped by a couple Seattle locations  to check out the action.

Most of the creating took place at The Art Institute of Seattle; we did check out Digipen but we either caught everyone on a break or everyone decided to head over to AIS because that was the happening game jam locale. I was surprised to see how many developers were using Unity to build some pretty slick 3D worlds.

We could only stay for a little while because Adventure was calling. We spent the rest of the weekend with characters/physics interactions as well as some of the story beats for the Pilot episode. It was refreshing to see passionate designers, developers, and artists giving it their all 24/7 to create games.

And now some randomness…so I have been watching Stargate Atlantis like crazy and can’t get the theme song out of my head. Now I’m a HUGE John Williams fan, and happen to think the greatest adventure song ever composed is Raiders March, yet I have to say the Atlantis theme and the SG-1 theme hold their own nicely.  But don’t take my word for it:

Sigh…people that know me best know this isn’t last time I’ll post Raiders March or rant about music.  Play them out Dumbledore…

“Ah, music,” he said, wiping his eyes. “A magic far beyond all we do here! And now, bedtime. Off you trot!”
