On the 2nd & 3rd November 2022, the Computer Science Society at the University of Bristol held their annual games jam. The theme: It’s not a bug, it’s a feature!
The Bristol Digital Game Lab sponsored two prizes, including Most Accessible Game and Best Engagement with History and Culture. We were delighted to take part in the judging alongside colleagues from Ardman, MyWorld, and the University of Bristol.
Huge congratulations to the students, who built fantastic games from scratch in ~30 hours incorporating innovative artwork, design choices and narratives. It was difficult to select a winner, but Jordan’s appropriately titled Magnum Opus impressed us in most categories, with its stop motion aesthetic and nod to video game history.
