The scale and scope of the Global Game Jam is astounding. In its third year, over 6500 participants across 169 jam sites in 44 countries produced nearly 1500 games - all in 48 hours!

For the first time, there was Jam action in Montreal with two sites: one at Ecole de Technologie Superieure and the other at EA Mobile’s offices. I was lucky enough to serve as a judge at the ETS site, where we checked out the 10 games that were produced.

Montreal Tech Watch has a nice recap article, and I snapped a few photos:
