A while back we participated in a gamejam. This gamejam was no ordinary gamejam though; it lasted a whole 5 days! The gamejam centered around making a game to introduce a new environmental law that’s coming up. Well, what do you think? We won that gamejam!
Winning the gamejam resulted in us getting big assignment. We got the rights to produce the game we made during the jam into a full-fledged game to be used by our governemnt.
The game centers around setting up a plan, by the neighbourhood, for the neigbourhood. You play, together with others, a character living in such a neighbourhood and you have the possibility to create something new. Like a park or a new look for the mall or whatever.
Of course, you have to manage some things here, like money or how big things are. And you can’t just place anything wildy without thinking of the consequenses right? Also, your neigbours, the other players, might have some different ideas than yours. So discuss with each other before doing things haphazardly!
The game is played on mobile, just hook up with the other phones with (the same) wifi and start playing. It only takes like 15 minutes max.
