Our holiday competition has concluded!
The theme of the jam was “FORWARD MOTION” and we saw some amazing entries using GMS2 and sequences in very unique ways. Submissions included some cool space shooters like SPACE WORMS!! and SuperNova and some smart and interesting puzzle games, Move_Forward and Arctic Fox.
Our three winners were total standouts. The "Best game", Escape Sequence is a full package puzzle game with tons of polish. The "Best use of theme", Kismet is a narrative endless runner game that is a really unique game. The "Best use of sequences", OBJ_WORLD is a motion graphics music video making full use of sequences - it's not a game but it's so impressive!
