Guru Live Glasgow: Play Party

21 March 2019

To celebrate the amazing work and creativity of game jammers in Scotland, the winners of the three IGDA Scotland Play Parties across Dundee, Edinburgh and Glasgow will be showcasing their games at our closing reception at Guru Live Glasgow on Saturday 30 March at The Lighthouse, Glasgow. 

Edinburgh: HJEM

HJEM | Play PartyAmicable Animal, Jamesy Downie, Mark Barton, Steven McSeveney

HJEM is a strange and vaguely sinister rhythm-based puzzle game where everything is in thrall to the music. Beyond its name the game contains no words, just original synthwave music and hazy neon visuals, so the player has to deduce what the game wants from them in order to progress. Remember: SURROUND YOURSELF // FOLLOW THE BEAT // AVOID DESTRUCTION

Dundee: A House, on Fire

A House on Fire | Play PartyLynn Parker

“Everybody gets along like a house on fire” What do you do first when all seems to be going haywire? Save gran? Patch knees? Help mum? A game which tests how good you are at “putting out” the little fires of daily responsibilities and emergencies.

Hearthlight | Play PartyPreslav Petrov & Borislav VasilevHearthlight is an environmental navigation puzzle game, revolving around controlling light in order to traverse a pitch black environment.
