The Global Game Jam (GGJ) is the world's largest game jam event occurring annually in late January. This year, 6500 jammers created almost 1500 games in 44 different countries in the span of 48 hours.

(Best played with 3 or more people, 1 mouse, a couple gamepads, but you can use just keyboard and mouse if desired)
Due to various issues, the 3 streams are not necessarily in sync, though they are at least always on the same day.
I apologize for lack of images for one programmer on the first day, the 5 lines of code I wrote to make a periodic screenshot taker wasn't as robust as it could have been (it's 7 lines now, much smarter).
It's completely unknown why there's no sound in some gameplay videos when composited here. I blame Premiere.
Game development stats:
- 84 man-hours (3 people for 28 hrs)
- 2400 new lines of code
- Built on the Game Library of Victory (libGlov)
