Global Game Jam 2010 was a really great experience. We made new friends at the Paris location and created a very experimental game with an experimental title : Meet Me at the Banana Disco. If you’ve already suscribed to our twitter, you may have read some news from us live during the event. But we wanted to share a more detailed report of the event as we lived it. Here it is, led by our twitts :
