Global Game Jam 2014 Was a Success!

Hey everyone,

We just had Global Game Jam 2014 and with 50+ jammers we created 10 unique games! The theme this year was “Things are not as they are, but as we are.” 

Here is a link to the 10 games created at the Cal Poly jam site this year:


Also, stay tuned for our club-made club fair game. We are gathering ideas and making a game for the upcoming Cal Poly club fair!
