Volcano GameJam Post-Mortem

A big thank you for all the people that helped us make our Volcano Game Jam a success!

On 14, 15 and 16 november, 40 jammers gathered in a wonderful place: La Cité du Volcan, in Reunion island. The secret theme was not secret, the Volcano, but we promised sub-themes to be picked up right before starting the GameJam... of course there wasn't any sub-theme, it was just to avoid teams coming in with a game already made... and it worked!

And we were so lucky: Eric Chahi (Another World, Heart of Darkness, From Dust) was our president of the jury!

We also had the chance to have great sponsors: Not only there was no inscription fee, but meals and beverages were offered during the whole GameJam.

And then there were many prizes, among them: 6 android tablets, 4 Unreal Engine pro 1 year licences, 8 USB keys, Many books about volcanos, games and accessories...

You can find the official Video here :

And the results here :


Thanks to all the jammers and see you next year for another Volcano GameJam!
