GameJam

The Spring 2019 Edition of the GameJam was scheduled for 2019 Apr 4–6. The competition started with a soft start on Thursday at 6PM and a hard start on Friday at 6PM and end 10PM Saturday evening.

The theme was "heist". We had about 20 participants on 8 teams.

Congratulations to the winning teams!

  2. Gone Rogue by Zachary Winters and Connor Salter (MooBar)
  3. Mech Heist by David Nurkkala (#1 Victory Royale)

Superlative Awards go to:

  • Best Writing and Best Art Awards: Man in the Van by Luke Brom, Tim Ours, Imani Muya, Caitlin Gaff (ILTC...Do you?)
  • Best Innovation Award: Heist by Scotti Bozarth, Alex Wardlow, Robert Swanson (Vicious Rabbit)

Similar to F2019, each team can have at most 2 programmers but any number of other members (designer of graphics, music, sound, storyboard, character, level, etc.). All Taylor students are invited, from any major, not just CSE students or programmers. Freshmen are encouraged to participate. Bringing friends is also welcomed. The competition has a $10/participant fee to help cover cost of trophies, snacks, and drinks. New this year: Superlative Awards (best writing, audio, art, etc.) will be awarded.
