January in Arizona, the Phoenix Global Game Jam 2015 took place at ASU’s Tempe campus. Eleven teams got together to create the best games they could make within a 48 hour timer. The event was hosted by Game CoLab and Intel, with sponsors including Cosplay & Fan Gear, LLC. A variety of games were made around the theme of “What do we do now?” ranging from a first person shooter to a point and click exploration game. Some teams opted to use their own game engines with 2D graphics, while others used Unity to make 3D games.
Here is a break down of the games…
A Random Walk (unknown)
Andre the Dragon Slayer (rpg)
Aztec Vector (maze)
Humpty Dumpty (platform)
Oh no, What to do? (survival)
