Guernsey Global Games Jam 2023

We’ve just wrapped up Guernsey Global Games Jam 2023 at Guernsey’s Digital Greenhouse. I’ve lost track of how many we’ve done now, but it is a fair few! My employer, Cortex sponsored this year.

Me, looking a bit odd, showing our game

The theme this year was ‘Roots’. Our team was made up of 4 people, including myself: Marc Beavan, Matthew Champion and Aaron Smillie. We made a game about an alien meteor crashing in a town with a tentacle monster spreading out to destroy the buildings and kill the inhabitants. One of the townsfolk happens to have a helicopter which you can use to collect survivors and take them to safety. The different buildings are named (e.g. care home, orphanage, states, tax office) so you can decide who to save.


We used Godot this year.
