Dublin GameCraft 5 - What a weekend! Wednesday, June 4 2014

Two years of GameCraft celebrated from whens it started.

It was over two years ago since we ran our first GameCraft. And it all started at DIT, and we are back again, this time for a weekend game jam.

People were super polite, they even queued for pizzas, and I’m sure many are famished as it was around 6 hours in.

And to help with a boost of sugar later on, an awesome GameCraft cake:

We played Johann Sebastian Joust, I can say many had fun, and it’s great to introduce social games like this, and seeing the looks on folks faces light up with glee playing it. It’s so addictive. Pity we couldn’t pair two more controllers that night.

Thanks to all who came along for an awesome weekend.

Big thanks to our sponsors

Big kudos to DIT for their support through the last 2 years, and particularly for this one since they are hosting us for 24 hours :D



We couldn't make GameCraft happen without the awesome help from our sponsors Photon Cloud
