Celebrating a Successful Game Jam 2011

We’d like to again thank our participants for making this event the success it was!

In celebration of the Global Game Jam wrap-up and their relocation back to the Silent Barn, Babycastles will be showcasing an entertaining day long event curated by the NYU Game Center and Arthur Ward, Jr. This Saturday, February 5th, at 2PM, Babycastles will open up the floor and let guests explore the games created last weekend at the NYU Game Center’s site of the Global Game Jam. The event will also include a workshop of mini-comics and presentation of the work at the The Center for Cartoon Studies. Additionally, Babycastles has put together and all-star set of chip-tune bands like Anamanaguchi, The J. Arthur Keenes Band, Nullsleep, Starscream, and George & Jonathan.

 

We’d like to take this time to announce that Ned, You Really Suck the Life out of a Room was awarded, by Gamesauce.org, as one of the top ten premier games from the Global Game Jam from the +1500 that were developed during the event. Gamesauce.org, in collaboration with the IGDA Global Game Jam, have awarded these ten teams the incredible opportunity to meet and discuss their games with publishers of the industry at Casual Connect Europe, in Hamburg, Germany. Congratulations Randall Li, Chris Makris, Ben Norskov, Mathew Lo Presti, and Roger Cheng, for producing such a successful product!

For those interested in meeting the developers of these great games, as well as how they decided to design the games, there will be game presentations and game design talks by each of these teams around 4PM.

Come join us as we celebrate the hard-work and success of these outstanding teams!
