Interactive Film Screening: 48 Hour Games
January 23, 2015 @ 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm
Before the Global Game Jam starts, we will be screening 48 Hour Games – an interactive documentary moderated by the creator, current Open Documentary Lab fellow, Suvi Andrea Helminen. This is open to anyone!
“48 Hour Games follows the stories of the participants of the 2011 Nordic Game Jam as they strive to create a video game from scratch in just 48 hours.
With 48 Hour Games you are not simply a spectator, but also a player, deciding which characters to follow and favourite, unlocking extra video clips and achievements based on your actions, and exploring the winding road of multiple narratives.
Choose your path, and experience the Nordic Game Jam as if you were actually there.”
