Below the list Global Game Jams I attended over the years.
- Global Game Jam 2021: Operation: Wabshnug
Global Game Jam 2021 was an online edition. I participated in a team of 6 to create a turn-based multiplayer game called Operation: Wabshnug. We had to continue with the trend of creating multiplayer games. Since this was an online edition we decided to work on a online multiplayer game.
It was a challenging jam, we were ambitious and dedicated. In the end it payed off. We built a game we can actually play online with friends.
Theme: “Lost & Found”

Operation Wabshnug is a social multiplayer game where you and 7 friends outwit each other by stealing items from a museum. Plan your steps and make sure people don’t see you with the FORBIDDEN items. Rat out your gathered information for bonus points, so pay attention!
- Global Game Jam 2020: Broken Bridges

Broken Bridges is a cooperative versus game where you have to construct a broken bridge. Communication and dedication is important in this game so you and your partner can create and place the building blocks needed to complete the bridge.

- Global Game Jam 2019: Snail Trail
My third Global Game Jam, and it was an awesome one. 48 hours at the HvA with about 8 hours of sleep in total (worth it). We art starting to form a pattern here, we decided to work on another local-multiplayer game. With a group of 2 artists and 4 programmers we came up with a fun little 1v1v1v1 game. (In a way it is a 3v1 game).
Theme: “What home means to you”
GGJ Site: https://globalgamejam.org/2019/games/snail-trail
You will need 2 to 4 controllers to play this game. It is playable in the browser
The game is about 4 snails fighting over a shell. The goal is to hold the shell for a total of 30 seconds while fending off the other players.
Can you stand your ground against three snails fighting for a home?

- Global Game Jam 2017: We’re Still Here
My first Global Game Jam! At the start of my internship at Virtual Play I was asked if I would like to join their team at the GGJ. (I said yes!) It was my second game game jam, but it was still mysterious in a way. It was great fun and a nice introduction to the GGJ.
GGJ Site: https://globalgamejam.org/2017/games/were-still-here
In We’re Still Here you control a group of people trying to please the god Tiamatzu, goddess of the waves. While the island is stormed with tsunami’s you try to hold stand and bunker up. Your hope is to create a small civilization so you can build the great wonder to please Tiamatzu.
