As you all know, I am passionate about game development. So it is my pleasure to be one of the organizers of the Global Game Jam Lagos 2017.

The event page shows that the event is already sold out but if you are interested in participating, just show up. One important tip to add about the venue is that it is beside the Raumplus showroom.

If you know nothing about game jams and are searching for resources, this link will help you come up to speed.

We will be posting updates from our Facebook page. We hope to see you at the venue.

Welcome to a new month!

Last month was awesome. I attended my first Global Game Jam. It felt good hanging out with game developers of the future.

Its been 5 years since I created my first game. With certain personal events, I have lost my fire. Being in that room made me remember why I started.

Initially I didn’t want to go as I just wanted to take the weekend off and rest. But fate intervened and I had to go. I missed the Friday session (big mistake) and went on Saturday. For me one day was enough to find my fire again.

The event held at Center 4 Tech. In my 5 years in the industry, I have never visited this venue. A friend assured me that it would be awesome and true to type, the event did not disappoint.

I don’t have the final head count of those who attended but in all 6 games were developed. You can view them here. Yours truly built a simple crossword puzzle with the words that make up ritual. It is called Ritual.

I wanted to build a falling object game. Sadly missing Theme Friday put me way behind of the thought process. So I settled for something simple.

All in all, I had fun. Let’s do it again next year. Special thanks to the guys at Center 4 Tech for making this event happen.
