Game Compatibility

Super Game Jam is first and foremost a film project - the games created during each episode were developed in 48 hours. While they are all delightful, they are mostly unfinished and unpolished prototypes that may not function flawlessly or at all on some system configurations or operating systems. Technical support for these games will be minimal as the games themselves are provided purely as an extra bonus with the short films and were not prepared for standalone commercial releases.

All Episodes Now Available in Streaming Format

Super Game Jam is now available in the Steam Streaming Video Format. If you are an existing owner of Super Game Jam, click here to add the Super Game Jam episodes to your Videos library to stream and watch instantly.

For new customers, the Super Game Jam streaming videos will be added to your Videos library automatically upon completing your purchase. You will still receive the full downloadable version with the game prototypes and extra content.

Downloadable Games - System Requirements

Loved it! Every episode has a different team dynamic, so it was very interesting to see how some indies I know work with each other in an intense 2 day jam. It's all shot very well, and the soundtrack is great. I listen to it while working sometimes :)

This project is a reflection on the state of the game development community. It is often too common to see developers ask full price for a partially completed game. Now we have to pay full price on a film that fails to meet its first deadline.

The Documentary
Super Game Jam is an episodic documentary—in each of the five (30-minute-ish) episodes, two people get together and spend 48 hours making a game. Because each episode features different people, the entertainment value depends on ten individuals and the chemistry of five pairings. That's why episode one is, by far, my favorite. And why I could barely finish episodes two and four.

As others have mentioned, the technical quality varies dramatically throughout the documentary. The camera work in episode five is especially awful. You will also see the cameramen sometimes, which is just poor editing.

Each episode starts by showing you some things the jammers have made in the past, or are currently making. Then you get a game prompt (episode one's prompt, for example, is "breakup"), and a discussion of what the game will be. Then they start programming the game, making the music, making the art, and recording the sound, depending on the episode. There are points during each episode when they play the game. Mostly it's just the jammers discussing the game, with over-the-shoulder shots of their screens. The episodes finish with a quick play of the game, a short pub/house party segment of other people playing the game, and mini-interviews with the jammers talking about the experience/game.

A lot of people will find this boring. I found it boring.

The Application
SGJ isn't just five video files and five games. It's a surprisingly buggy, fullscreen-only application with absolutely no settings, which comes in the form of an 11.5 GB download. The video player has three features: pause, volume control, and seek. Thankfully, you can avoid the application altogether and view the videos in your preferred video player by browsing through the SGJ's files. (Which you should do if you have blurry video in SGJ's built-in video player.)

The Games
These are jam games. While some of them are cute, you probably won't play any of them for more than five minutes.

The Special Features
SGJ comes with "uncut discussions" and/or deleted scenes for each episode. Some are quite short (1 minute), others relatively long (18 minutes). And you probably won't watch them.

It also lets you listen to the music. I didn't like the music.

The Price
Is too high.

So
I really did enjoy episodes one and five. Some people enjoy all five episodes. If you think the entertainment you'll get is worth the price tag, then you should buy it. But maybe only when it's on sale.

I expected a little bit more technical overview and motivation for beginning game designers/developers.

First episode - Navigator

As I wrote at the beginning of the review it wasn't what i expected. It was a little bit too shallow for me I would expect a little bit more of a in-depth documentary rather than "This is buggy, hmm, I know how to fix it!" and proceed to fix it without any explanation or comment.

Even though 48 hours isn't that much I think they could make the episode longer than 30 minutes

The game itself seems to be pretty good though, the design feels a little bit more mobile orientated to me, but heck, what do i know?

I'm curious what will the other episodes bring.
