About Rakethopp

This is my personal site about interaction design in general and game design in particular.

However, it's terribly out of date! Expect a revamp very soon (as of the fall of 2014).

Enterhake - The Gothenburg [Experimental] Game Jam

 

The weekend of the 8th of June me, Erik Svedäng and Robert Edström arranged the first of hopefully many Enterhake game jams. We had over 20 participants, many from the #indieGBG group. The Interaction design programme generously allowed us to use the whole second floor in Kuggen, so there was lots of space in a really creative environment.

The overarching theme was camera, but we also gave everyone Kinder eggs and handed out bonus points to those who managed to motivate their games using the contents of their eggs! In total 5 original and widely varied games were made, spanning from networkeded multiplayer photo games to trippy Pokémon-snap inspired experiences.

I worked together with Linus Nordgren from Hello There and Juha Kangas from Ludosity to make a mobile-augmented game which revolves around a green-sensitive mobile camera.

I did a walk-through of the jam late during the first night (and some more the next afternoon).

More pictures and videos, as well as the games themselves, can be found on the jam website.
