From Indiestatik.com: Out of one quote sprouts a thousand themes. Bias. Perspective. Privilege. Attributed sometimes to memoirist Anaïs Nin, other times the Jewish Talmud, a negotiation expert, a priest, the mysterious quote has found its way into 2014 as the theme for this year’s Global Game Jam.
This past weekend, all around the world, people gathered in their respective cities and homes to celebrate a shared love of game development. 48 hours to create a game, from scratch, with the only rule being it must represent the theme.
Some games follow the theme strictly, yet gracefully. Others seem to stray, though that’s also a matter of interpretation. Regardless, this weekend spawned thousands of awesome new games for the world to enjoy, and below is but a small collection of some of our favorites.
