With Julia Klement, we went on holiday in Copenhagen during the freezing week of Spring. Maybe not the best timing, but we went there also for the Nordic Game Jam 15, the biggest local game jam in the world with around 700 participants every year.

With my new job, comes new responsibilities. I had the task with Game Department to organise a game jam at the SAE Institute Geneva. I had to select the theme and kickoff the event. You can see my interview in French here:

For the theme, I choose Mechanical Love for the combination of two interesting concepts. I really hate blank theme or too specific ones. In the list of very bad theme: NGJ15 with the theme “Obvious” and the Epic Game Jam Round #2 2015 with the theme “90% water, 10% evil and 5% skin”. People were happy about the theme and scattered around the school to work on their project.

With Julia Klement, we decided to take literally and to make a robot-dating game sort of like Tinder with robots. We took some characters from Splash, added other characters. Here is the cast:

The game is called “Robot, mon chéri” and you can play it on Android and Desktop here: https://teamkwakwa.itch.io/robot-mon-chri

I leave you with the shy robot ending, enjoy!
