Rezzed: Who Won The Game Jam?

By Alec Meer on June 25th, 2013 at 8:00 pm.

picked a random! I am showing no preference!

Obviously there’s no way the game jam at Rezzed this year could be as good as the game jam at Rezzed last year. Obviously. I mean, I hosted it last year. I just don’t see how the fact that this year’s game jam was better-organised, involved more people, had more time to both create and present the games, came up with an actual judging process and didn’t involve me frantically trying to make an underpowered laptop talk to a projector in the middle of the presentation could possibly mean it was any better.

Oh alright, mine was a total mess. But everyone had fun! At least I think so. In both cases though, amazing things were made within a very short time frame indeed, though the fact the participants in this one the best part of a weekend rather than just an hour means they are noticeably more involved than the many micro-concepts of last year. I think that next year we should have a one hour one and a weekend-long one though – if a one hour one won, imagine what that says about videogames! Imagine. That they take different amounts of time to create, that’s what it says.

Here, watch the games in the 2013 jam, each made by a four-person team, and see which one was voted the winner by our star panel of judges – Obsidian’s Chris Avellone, Splash Damage’s Ed Stern and The Guardian’s Keith Stuart.

Well done, everyone who entered. This is what it’s all aboot.

    I have been meaning to ask someone.
    How come John seems to post a lot less articles than everyone else?
    Is he a specialty writer for things like opinion pieces or part time contributor?

    Who won Rezzed this year? Was it PC?

    • Mogster says:

      Despite competition from the PSVita and the iPad, I’d say so yeah. ;)

      I really enjoyed the game jam presentation. The winning game was my favourite too, although the Tango Fiesta guys were rather entertaining.

    Are there downloadz for any of these gamez? :(

    Really impressive work there! Amazing stuff!

    I’m glad 80 Spies won though – that looked genuinely great. Very clever mechanic underlying it.

    Always amazed at how these guys do it, well done all. Also well done to the young developer who needed a wee on stage at the end, those are some funky moves.
