Game Jam Flyer

A flyer advertising an event for a 48 hour indie game development session. The design reflects the old school style of games development whilst incorporating the online digital nature of modern gaming. The idea of this game jam is to work to specific limitations to inspire creativity. Some of the most interesting ideas in the 8-bit and 16-bit era came about through compromises made because the hardware was not up to the task of the original vision. In hindsight, these compromises often resulted in a more interesting idea. With today’s technology, there are fewer limitations with regards to hardware, so it’s interesting to see what artificial limitations can produce and then how these ideas can be expanded further when these limitations are removed.
