Global Game Jam 2020 Galway Roundup

Hi folks,

Thanks to everyone for helping to make Global Game Jam ’20 another success, and especially to our great team of organisers and shed full of jammers at the Galway jam-site.

A very important message about taking breaks and taking care of yourself was at the heart of this jam. This is something I generally focus on with our Galway Game Jams, so we were delighted that this message was at the heart of the Global Game Jam 2020 Keynote.

You can check out the games made this year on the official page here: https://globalgamejam.org/2020/jam-sites/galway-ireland/games

If you have any questions give me a shout. For now I will be taking a day off to rest, and play some of these games again!

Big thanks to Galway Film Centre for supporting us, without their help we would not have been able to provide free entry!

Thanks to GamerFest for supplying prizes for our People’s Choice award and sharing our event on social media!

Thanks to Andrew in Seattle for assisting with the cross-site collaboration experiment, as well as the awesome team that made it work!

I’ll remember this one for a long time – really positive athmosphere with a bunch of chilled out people all foccussed on their projects with a drive to get things done.
