SGDC 2017 – Big Nick vs The Northern Moose
The Sudbury Game Design Challenge (SGDC) is a 48-hour app-a-thon in my hometown of Sudbury, Ontario. This year, I entered with three friends of mine despite having never properly programmed a game before. This was primarily to support the SGDC as it’s an event organized by people I have a great amount of respect for. Over the course of the 48-hours, me and my colleagues were able to put together a game that wound up winning 3rd place out of 18 entries.
The sheer creative, engaging atmosphere of 18 teams working 48 hours straight was an incredible experience and one I look forward to participating in again in the future.
