• RunJumpDev Games Made During Train Jam 2016

    This year, several members of RunJumpDev participated in the Train Jam. The Train Jam is a game jam that takes place aboard the California Zephyr — a train that runs from Chicago to Emeryville, California. Most of the developers aboard the train are bound to GDC, the game developers conference that takes place in San Francisco. Over the course of the 52 hours that the train makes its way across most of the continental US, jammers make a variety of games based on the theme presented.

    This years theme was Maximum Capacity.

    There were six members of RunJumpDev on board the train, as well as several pals from the surrounding area (hello Louisville Makes Games and the folks from Sigma Play). These are the games made by RunJumpDev members at this years Train Jam.

    Train Jam Simulator 2K16


    This game was made by RunJumpDev members Shylo Shepherd and John Meister (as well as other developers).

    Train Jam Simulator 2K16 is a resource management – typing – dialogue game created for and about Train Jam 2016.

    The game is created using photography from the actual experience. Everything from the train, environments outside, and computers to the actual jammers themselves are from actual photos during the jam. We interviewed 20 real game developers from the Jam and included them in the game!

    The night is brisk, the old techno music is thumping, the dads are here. There’s just one problem: there’s only one hot tub and every dad wants in! Drag and drop dads into the hot tub to increase their happiness but don’t leave one out for too long or they’ll freeze to death and make the party lame.
