Later this week all of us Apes will be taking a break from our day to day tasks to flex our creative muscles in the A Thinking Ape Game Jam! From Wednesday through Friday we’ll form teams, brainstorm ideas, and crush out code as we rapidly develop games. The only requirements being that each game must be based on the Kingdoms of Heckfire universe and playable at the end of the Game Jam. We’ll be posting regular updates for those wanting to follow along at atagamejam.tumblr.com There may or may not be prizes to win, votes to cast on your favourite game, opportunities to ask our devs, artists and product people questions about game design (and everything else really) and perhaps some Parks and Rec style interviews on the Tumblr! It’s a pretty sweet opportunity to get to know the people (and perhaps see the faces) behind Kingdoms at War and our other games and what our process is roughly like when we create something new. One important thing to note: The games that are made from this Game Jam aren’t intended to be A Thinking Ape’s next big hit, but rather act as a fun creative outlet. If you’re looking for something more than that, we recommend you sign up for updates on our upcoming title Kingdoms of Heckfire at kingdomsofheckfire.com.
