As Scottish Game Jam 2012 prepares for launch and descends into a flurry of designing, coding, drawing and creating, we’d like to take a moment to remind you of Global Game Jam: $8 Hours of Persistence, Programming and Pizza at Scottish Game Jam, a book written by games writer Jon Brady all about last year’s Scottish Jam. Global Game Jam follows Jon as he keeps track of five very different teams during the Jam, monitoring the successes and failures they encounter during the weekend and watching their games come to life.
The book also includes some useful development advice and hints and tips for the aspiring Game Jammer, and it makes for entertaining reading as Jon’s irregular sleep pattern gets the better of him.
Global Game Jam is on sale now on Amazon for £9.99 at this link: http://amzn.to/tN71IF
