Nordic Game Jam - again

Nordic Game JamPosted by Anders Højsted Thu, January 26, 2012 18:30
Hi all,

Sometimes quitting isn't easy.

Like I said earlier, I wanted to stop doing volunteer work in the IGDA & with Nordic Game Jam. Not because I have any issues with either of them - in fact I think they are awesome and important - but I don't really have the time to be a volunteer.

But then life happened (Life is what happens while you are making plans - John Lennon).

We had an goverment election in Denmark in september and the goverment changed. I'm politically active in of the parties that took over goverment and happens to know the new minister of culture.

All of the goverment support for games in Denmark is cultural support, so I thought it would be an obvious idea to invite him to open the Nordic Game Jam.

So I invited him ...and he accepted.

So I got back into Nordic Game Jam. It's going to be hectic, crazy and fun as usual (LEGO donated 59 kilos of LEGO-bricks) and I'll see if I can manage to blog about it in here. Maybe also set up a webcam so you can see me make games - live.

It is going to be awesome.
