A diverse lineup of games was shown at the Global Game Jam Play Party this year, hosted once again by DePaul CDM. Dozens of people had fun scrambling for supplies in space stations, exploring a sequence of surreal vignettes, and wearing different hats. Six out of the twenty six games developed in Chicago were presented at the event, including:
Alone with Hats – A quirky 2D platforming game where players gain different abilities from wearing different hats
Space Scavengers – In this 2D co-op game, players race to collect enough supplies from abandoned space stations before its imminent destruction
Thank you to everyone who came by or presented their game, and to Allen Turner for helping to co-organise and photograph the event! Check out the photos for the party on IGDA Chicago’s Flickr page!
