Day 3 in Manila!


It's 11:07 am, Sunday. The teams here are working hard in deep, focused silence. Some are done and preparing to upload their projects; others are desperately trying to finish on time. I just went and wrote the upload instructions on a big whiteboard in front of the room, which led to some huddling and murmuring. Most of them ignored me and continued pounding away on their keyboards ;)

Manila Game Jam is on!


I'm at the Manila Game Jam at UP ITTC. It's 6:12 pm, Friday. There are 21 registered participants, with more coming in, and already people are deep in discussion on how to follow the official theme.

When I first heard the theme, my first reaction was, "Well, shit, I wish I were joining!" As part of the IGDA Manila board and the official "emcee", my job is to keep things running while not interfering with anyone else's creative process. But the designer in me is already thinking of ways to prototype the theme! Graaaaaaah.
