This weekend, despite being unable to attend QuakeCon in Dallas, Texas, ended up being a pretty great weekend. For the first time ever, I helped create a video game. I’ve always loved video games, and have long since wanted to make one. I decided to go to a “game jam” run by the good folks at Game CoLab called Phoenix Makes Games Jam, which for the uninitiated, is a timed challenge for people to create an entire video game. In this case, we had 48 hrs to make a dinosaur themed game.
