So this year I participated in the global Game Jam
entering in the Sydney venue for the jam. I have to say it was an amazing experience and would highly recommend it to anyone considering game development as either a hobby or career. Those of you with some free time on your hands should check out the site link and see some of the thousands of amazing games that have been created in under 48 hours. There have been some amazing ideas from all over the world. I know that just at the Sydney event alone I was blown away by the creativity shown, and the speed of iteration. This is an event I will be marking on the calendar every year from here on in I think!
