Carbine Explains the WildStar Game Jam
The business of game design is one filled with lots of work hours and typical weeks of hair-pulling insanity. This week Carbine takes fans behind the curtain to see what a typical week in the life of a WildStar game designer is like. Along with the usual 40-60 hour work week filled with game tweaks, content design, bug squashing, and other bits of insanity, the devs also indulge in a little Game Jam on the weekends from time to time. Game Jams as described by the blog is a chance for the devs to stretch their legs creatively and try new design ideas that may not usually be part of the weekly work routine.
In short, Game Jams are a chance for the teams to come in and try something new for a change to break up the monotony of a normal work day and maybe even make something new and fun artistically or mechanically.
