What a crazy weekend this has been! We’ve had so many things going on that just looking back at it makes you wonder how was it possible for so much to happen in so little time.
We really hope you have all enjoyed participating in Nordic Game Jam 2014 as much as we have enjoyed organizing it!
But let’s get back to the most important thing of the game jam: THE GAMES!
Because, at the end of the day, Nordic Game Jam is all about meeting new people and making cool games together. Whether it was your first game ever, a game you are now really proud of, or a project that you failed with (but learned a lot from). Games are at the core of this event. This year we had the astonishing amount of 110 games submitted (check them all out here!), with a total of 500 participants, making #NGJ14 the biggest game jam in the world! That’s yet another new record set by us!
And while we’ve seen some quite amazing things created by all of you surrounding this year’s theme of PRIVACY, the most outstanding of them made it to the final round of presentations.
Want to take a quick look again into which games they were and how to download them? Here are all the finalists!
All these were great games that were voted by the audience in each of the separate categories and they all deserve a huge round of applause for making it this far. If you haven’t tried them out yet, we recommend you give them a go by following their respective links to Unicorn 7!
And finally, the winners of Nordic Game Jam 2014!
3rd place – “Filth” and “In Space No One Can Hear You Cry”
2nd place – “No Privacy in a Bobsled”
The audience voted for the DDR dance mat controlled “No Privacy in a Bobsled“!
1st place – “Richard Anderson’s Putting Challenge”
And the winner of Nordic Game Jam 2014 is…
