Something I picked up on this weekend on my twitter feed. Game was developed at a game jam I wanted to go but unfortunately couldn't attend! http://www.retrovideogamer.co.uk/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=190&catid=101&Itemid=316

Thanks for sharing it, matteus.

I had a team in the first Global Game Jam and I definitely encourage you to go because the atmosphere provided by the "business" model of the event is quite awesome IMO.
Actually, I think GGJ was inspired by the OLPC Game Jam (I also participated once); which kind of had the same format but was limited to the OLPC platform and didn't have all the sites connected at the same time.

The year I went to GGJ we developed a co-op platformer using XNA. It was cool but we're kinda robbed and got the second place because the "winner" team was formed by students of the hosting university, lol.
But the whole thing is the atmosphere of the event, the knowledge and new contacts you can acquire during the "marathon".
