In Part 1 I said I would talk about our game Undefined Behavior more specifically. Maybe that wording was a little too liberal. By the end of the game jam, we didn’t really have a game per se. With that said, what we did end up with had a distinct feel to it.

Our local game developer club, Iowa Game-Dev Friendship, held what I think was our 8th game jam in Ames this weekend. As expected, it was an awesome time.
