Jammers in Minamisoma, Japan supported the recovering Tohoku region after the devastating earthquake earlier this year. The Fukushima Game Jam took place this weekend, August 27, 28th and was a great success.

Eight teams worked together to develop games from start to finish in 30 hours. Organised by IGDA Japan and Ubiquitous Entertainment.

The theme for the event was Fun Overcomes Difficulty, and they did show the world that that enthusiasm and energy can do amazing things.
