Recently, we attended at our first GameJam, the SemesterGameJam!
A GameJam is an event where teams of game developers try to create games in a weekend, with as little sleep as possible.
The team size is about five to six people, everybody with a different background and full of motivation.
We worked in a team of six people on a game called Disturbing Magnets!
Two competing construction companies fight about a plot of land, they agreed on building a tower each and who build the highest tower wins the plot of land.
Unfortunately, after the deadline both towers are equally high and they had to find another solution to see who wins.
So they agreed on a battle on the rooftop with powerful magnets, each team stands on their own tower and tries to push their opponents of the rooftop.
The team that pushes the other team in two minutes most often wins and gets the plot of land plus both towers.
We implemented the game with Unity 3D, Beate made all the 3D models and John did some programming.
The game uses standard Xbox controllers and is playable on Windows, Mac and Linux.
Our teammates were amazing, we learned a lot at this event and the organization was also very good.
We can't wait to participate at the next SemesterGameJam!
You can download Disturbing Magnets here, plays best with two Xbox Controllers!
