Was it worth just over a week of grinding on their projects? biting nails? bingeing coffee? suppressing the desire to see the sun? Probably, because these 5 games look fun as hell!
In all, a whopping 64 games were created in this year’s Game Jam—the combined brain-child of DreamHack and Game Jolt. The devs clobbered the genre challenge “Battle Royale” but only 5 of the coolest builds have the honor of being shown at our fest. So, that’s an enormous thanks to everyone who entered and a big congrats to the winners.
Don’t forget when you play these games, you could be holding in your hands the very first pre-pre-alpha concept build of the next PUBG, Fortnite, or completely new take on the genre! Find them all in the Game Jolt DIY Zone (psst! that’s in the Expo) at DreamHack Atlanta.
