Game Jam 2020

#togehterapart! Another success at this year's Game Jam in Klagenfurt

The 7th Klagenfurt "Game Jam" took place from April 24th to 26th, 2020 - an event for everyone with a passion for video games. The focus is on developing them by yourself, testing them or simply exchanging ideas! The goal is to develop a game on a specific topic in 48 hours, which will then be tested and evaluated in detail by the other participating teams. This year the topic was "#togetherapart".

 

Basically, the Klagenfurt Game Jam, organized by Assoc. Prof. Dr. DI. Mathias Lux, is held annually at the Alpen-Adria-Universität Klagenfurt. This year the event took place digitally. So unfortunately, the personal exchange was absent but the event was nevertheless a great success.

 

IMENDO has been a sponsor of this exciting event for many years and this year we can be particularly proud. Because two of our employees have won the 7th Klagenfurt Game Jam! With their video game "Swarm", Daniela Meinhardt, Franz-Josef Huber, our former employee Fabian Schober and their friend Peter Hafele have shown that they can not only create software solutions exceptionally good, they are also excellent game developers. The team was able to prevail easily against the tough competition and thus secured them the first place.

 

Curious about what else Daniela and Fabian´s game studio “Dirty Paws Studio” is developing and what is behind the title "Swarm"?  Just take a look at it yourself:
