Global Game Jam

Games for change

Held every year across the world, the Global Game Jam (GGJ) takes place over a weekend, allowing people to come together to code, draw, and collaborate to make games. Instead of being a competition, the GGJ encourages people to work together on making new, fun games in a 48 hour window. While that seems like no time at all to make a game, Mandy Wong (Philosophy, 2013) was able to do that, along with many others who participated in the event.

After being referred to the event by another student and professor, Mandy decided to attend the GGJ being held at Shwayder Art Building on the University of Denver campus. The game she made, along with Megan Fox and Nathan Madsen, is titled “Wolfy: A Love Story”. It’s about a dog that believes he’s a wolf. He hunts bunnies while avoiding bears and his grand mission is to find his soul mate.

Megan Fox coded the game while Nathan Madsen made the music. Mandy helped with the concept as well as with the voice acting that shows up in haiku form in the game. “I also made the bears and the butterflies,” she said.

When asked about what people with no coding experience could do at the GGJ, Mandy said, “You can still contribute and learn about games. And it’s fun!”
