Global Game Jam 2018 // Tartu
Global Game Jam 2018 happened 26-28 January. We ate humongous amount of pizza (72), formed 13 teams with 53 jammers. The theme was “Transmission”.
This was also the 10th anniversary of GGJ and all over the world, 42,800 jammers made 8,606 games in 108 countries.
We also did local voting and this time games got 400 votes (it was 250 last time).

Wololo me tender is a game about two religious priests competing to convert as many peasants as possible, walking around cities and preaching their faith.
B mission is an infinite 2D sidescroller with plane switching mechanics. The player controls an overly enthusiastic bee (busy bee), whos sole purpose in life is to transmit pollen to as many flowers as possible.
In the game you are the mayor of a small village. However, the impending doom is around the corner. Choose your actions wisely because every choice can take you closer to the doom. Can you survive 7 days?
This event would have not been possible without TÜ arvutiteaduse instituut, IGDA Estonia and Tartu Teaduspark.
We also got some help from RC Snail, Skype and A.Le Coq.
Big thanks to all the jammers.
And of course, Pizzacam.
