2nd place at the Great British Summer Game Jam
So the Jam hath ended… it was a great 48hrs at Mind Candy’s offices here in London. Friendly staff, lots of free food, coffee and wifi and of course making games.
Above is the theme we ended up using (out of two I made) for our game, Sunshi*e. In keeping with the jam’s theme (British Summertime) it’s a very British tune - it’s actually a 100+ year old song called Country Gardens collected by Cecil Sharpe in 1906, an ethno-musicologist who thought it was essential to record traditional folk songs before they were lost to time.
Not sure what he, or the original singer William Kimber, would think of what use we made of the tune but I would hope they’d at least appreciate the effort to keep the music alive :)
