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

8GB Disk Space. Not all game jam games will be compatible with all systems.

Its a short movie and it looks ok. Kinda a dramatized (and worse) version of what you would get in a free youtube ludumdare livestream. If you never ever had contact with game making, this might be interesting for you. In any other case, just go to youtube and watch a gamejam livestream for free, you will actually learn much more without all the drama they try to artificially insert into this thing.

Just purchased this in a sale after finding out that Tom Francis was one of the jammers, because I am a big fan of his work. it doesn't go into the intricacies of game development, but I didn't expect it to. It does however give you a glimpse at different workflows and group dynamics. All the devs featured have great chemistry together and it left me wanting to see these great people tackle more projects. If you're looking for learning material it's probably not for you, but as an inspirational series it's great. Would definitely recommend!

Nice series of a small documentaries about indie game makers participating in a 48 hour game jam.

The five part series gives you overshoulder look into different ways of trouble solving and creative workflows of five two person teams under tight deadline to create something playable.

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 :)

For Linux users;
"Additional Notes: Not all game jam games will be compatible with all systems."
Please note that this translates to: NONE of the game jam games will be compatible with ANY linux system. This felt like a bit of a kick in the teeth since it is listed as linux-compatible.

Now that I've watched all the episodes I think it is worth picking up despite this. I was a little concerned after episode 2 that the first episode was the strongest and the rest would be disappointing - however all three of the other shorts were interesting & a lot of fun :)

Overall I thought it was pretty inspiring. When you start comparing it to something like Indie Game: The Movie it falls short... but that doesn't mean it isn't valuable in its own right. It definitely has a very different feel to it, and deals with a different part of the indie game development world.

It was a great experience for me to see all 5 episodes with an extra bonus material. However, compilation of these videos & small games has one big minus - the price is very high.

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.

I enjoy game jams, and really enjoyed episode 1. I have to question if the project is still going on because it's July 12 and the June episode has yet to be released. I get wanting to hold things back if it's not ready but let the fans know first. Especially paid fans.

My recommendation is a YES to watch the series but a NO on purchasing it until all the episodes are released.

What's here is good. Sadly, that's a single episode when the schedule says we should have three by now. When it's finished and all five are released, it might be worth the money. Based on the first one... eh. Wait for a sale.

And that "music" that starts the first episode? Please never do that again.

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.

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!
