The 2015 Summer Game Jam took place August 9th and 10th, for 24 continuous hours. Thirty‐three students made working games from concept through completion on in this year’s event.

One team broke from the video game tradition, creating a full table card game, adding a new dimension to the mix. This year’s theme, ”Which came first: the chicken or the egg,” spurred the seven teams to create a wide variety of game concepts.

The next Jam will be the 48 hour Global Game Jam, January 29‐30, 2016. Save the dates!

VGDD Senior Project – The “Nu” Class (14th greek letter) had to present their capstone games at the festival  which was held on the MIT campus in Cambridge. New England Tech’s four teams rotated through the booth during the six-hour event with the goal of trying to get 100 players and user feedback.

Team One had a multiplayer “capture the flag” game called Block Island Bots.

Team Two featured a mobile device game called ”Human Cannonball” The objective of this game was to dodge mid-air obstacles and capture coins.

Team Three presented Grand Techno Rush, a racing game with an interesting musical effect.
