powpowpowpowpow

This weekend I participated in the July 2014 Berlin Mini Jam hosted by Game Duell. The theme was “local multiplayer”.

I worked with a team of developers for the better part of the 8-hour session exploring the local multiplayer prototyping environment I built in the week leading up to the jam.

5pow-1

We started the day with a playable prototype and re-purposed a lot of preexisting music, code, and sound effects, but I’m proud of what we accomplished. The end result, titled powpowpowpowpow, is a lot of fun, especially with a gamepad.
