Global Game Jam 2011

If you live in or anywhere remotely near Cologne and you are at least vaguely interested in game development and design, I strongly encourage you to join me/us in the next Global Game Jam!

Global Game Jam 2011


Like last year, the Cologne Game Lab will host a big Global Gam Jam event. We will provide workspace, Wi-Fi, energy drinks, rest areas and distractions. And it’s all for free!!

This time I decided to not only help hosting the event but also to participate. I never did one of those 48 hour challenges and it will be a welcome break from huge projects like TRAUMA. I’m completely dedicated to actually finish my game too!

The Jam will start in the evening of the 28th January and will last for exactly 48 hours. You can register here. Join us. It will be awesome.

    Looking forward to GGJ. Will be participating in Denmark’s Nordic Game Jam.


The Game Design Scrapbook is a second blog of group of three game designers from Germany. On our first blog, Game Design Reviews we describe some games we played and point out various interesting details. Unfortunately, we found out that we also need some place to collect quick and dirty ideas that pop into our minds. Hence, welcome to Game Design Scrapbook. You will encounter wild, random rantings. Many of then incoherent. Some of them maybe even in German. If you don't like it, you might enjoy Game Design Reviews more.
