January 28th 2011. Over 100 game developers, artists and designers gather at Glasgow Caledonian University. Ahead of them, the Scottish leg of the Global Game Jam - 48 hours of exhausting, sleep-deprived but invigorating and adrenalin-fuelled hardcore game development. The theme? Extinction. Enter Jon Brady, game journalist and Game Jam reporter veteran. Follow his exploits as he tries to document the Jam over the entire 48 hours - a job made progressively harder as insomnia, caffeine, alcohol, equipment failure and errands all take their toll and he begins to contemplate a personal extinction of his own. Global Game Jam offers a fly-on-the-wall perspective into what it takes to compete, survive and excel at a Game Jam competition. Full book details can be found on the Bennion Kearny website.
