Dare to be Digital: Post Mortem

Team Dziethew had a fantastic weekend showcasing our experimental game ‘The Gods Are Wanting’

(My team mate Dziek talking about our experiences)

Though our original plans to add large amounts of content to the game each night fell through (we spent our nights drinking networking instead), the public reaction to the game was still amazing to see.  People seemed to enjoy the pure fun and weird world of the game, which seemed to make up for the complete lack of polish (we only finished our first build two hours after the event opened).

 

We were so busy running the stall it wasn’t until the final day that I got the chance to quickly run around and play things.  I had a lot of fun with all the stuff I managed to play, but my favourites were definitely:

Gravity Pong by César Parent, a great twist to a classic game.

• Super Block Party by Sofa Squadron, really fun party game with plenty of polish.

Hedra by Kirsty Keatch, a lovely one touch infinite scroller.

KUBOT by Marios Michalakos, sweet minimalist puzzler for iOS.

• The Extraordinary Life and Times of Nigel Farage, Gentleman by Half Lamp Productions, fantastic satire piece with SIX unique minigames – so much effort & polish.

 

On the final night, as is traditional at the end of Dare, there was a Ceilidh held with good music, dancing, & a free bar.  A great end to a great event!

 

Thanks Dare!
