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.

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.

Super Game Jam is an incredible idea and has inspired many to create games inwhich people canget together and make games in a very short time. It is clear that even the most experienced game designer or designers in general learn from these game jams.
I felt that some of the camera movements and blurs where really OTT and really uneccery. It was really hard to follow and felt like a film student project. There could have been more time spent maybe POV shots of the designers creating the game or better questions asked as their designs seemed to have changed their ideas alittle or why they came to that conclusion in the end. It just felt alittle lost at times, but other than that it was inspiring!

Who would I recommend this for?
Someone who's interested in hearing some known indie developers talk about game design ideas and see how design iteration happens during a game jam.

Who would I not recommend this for?
Someone who wants to know how games are made.
Someone who wants insight into the game industry.
Someone who expects great cinematography.
Someone who expects a story.

I bought it after all 5 episodes were out so I had no concerns over whether the price was worth it. For me, the second episode was the only slow one. I had no expectations of it being better than "Indie Game" so all in all it was worth the price for some entertainment in a topic I love.

5 Episodes each is really entertaining and shows how creator of indie games work.

Super Game Jam gives an insight of how people who worked on really good games such as Hotline Miami are working. It shows how they find ideas to a theme and how they are developing the game they are thinking of.
You can also play the games they made in the episodes.

I really enjoyed seeing how the idea of making a game is evolving to something very good.

I recommend this Game/documentary because the games are fun to play and the documentaries are very interesting.
