What’s up, fellow jammers!

A couple weekends ago, a part of our community – more specifically, many Brazilian Ludum Darers + other devs + some special international invitees – have gathered (virtually) for a weekend and created games to support a charity institution that provides education and health assistance to poor children in Brazil. The event was called Super BR Jam, and the games that were created were bundled and are now on sale. Ah, andΒ 100% of the proceedings are being donated to charity. Yeah, it was practically at the same time as the Charity Game Jam, so all hearts are on the same place! πŸ˜€

 

 

This jam also holds special significance for us Brazilian indie devs. So far, Brazil hasn’t been known for a strong development community, and with our sweat and blood we are working to change that! Unlike two years ago, when each developer probably thought he was the only guy developing games in Brazil, our community is now becoming increasingly united and developed, with indie events and joint efforts such as Super BR Jam becoming less and less rare. Really guys, this is a HUGE step forward for us! So, as if helping charity wasn’t good enough, Super BR Jam is also full of that special meaning for us Brazilian indies! πŸ˜€

 

So, if you’ve watched the video above, you know the deal – it is a pay-what-you-want bundle containing a handful of great commercial games including Magicka, Dungeonland, Out There Somewhere and others, plus all the games that were created specifically for Super BR Jam! Below is the trailer for 49 Bullets – the game we created. It is in fact a spiritual successor to Super Fair Trial Show, which we developed for Ludum Dare 27. As of now, there is another video in production that contains gameplay footage from all of the jam games – I’ll add it here as soon as it’s available!

 

 

 

So, how can I help?

 

  • Well, first off, you can always buy the bundle and have access to all of these neat games!

 

  • If you can’t or don’t want to buy it for any reason, but still want to help, then spread the word! The bundle will remain available only for a very limited time, and any help getting the word out will be greatly appreciated! Once again, this is a charity bundle and all of the proceedings are going to Solar Meninos de Luz, so even promoting this bundle is a way of making a difference on these kids’ lives!

 

Thanks so much, and see you all in Ludum Dare 28! πŸ˜€
