Open Sourcing 9 Game Jam Projects

Homeworld Screenshot

Hey everyone, today we’d like to share something special: The source code to all of our game jam projects on brutalhack.itch.io.

We are big fans of open-source projects and also maintain our open source Bouncer Framework on GitHub.
So it was natural that we wanted to give back to the community.
All projects are GPLv3 (if a project is missing the LICENSE, let us know)

All projects are implemented in Unity and are developed cross-platform, following our Cross-Platform Guidelines.
Let’s slowly travel through time and revisit our past game jams (and their source code :D)

2020

Global Game Jam 2020

Whispers – overcome the five stages of grief.

You explore a ruined dreamscape to put yourself together again. Voices follow you everywhere.
This is a narrative-driven game, with the focus on dialogue and cutscenes.

This project includes a cutscene system with fully voiced dialogs. Also it contains 8-directional top-down movement.

2019

Global Game Jam 2019

Homeworld – Connect with your friends around the world.

A cross-platform rhythm game.

This project uses musicxml to synchronize player input and the rhythm of a midi file (audio is not midi, don’t worry).

2018

Global Game Jam 2018

Doki Doki Ragnarok – A wealth transmission simulator.

Can you find common battlegrounds with the villages?
Or will you be rejected in favor of a more handsome raiding party?

This project includes an extensive dialog system with conditions and events.

2017

InnoGames Game Jam #11

You’ve been Hacked!

Let’s see what can happen if someone gets your username and password.
Or much better: let’s simulate it.

This project includes lots of GUI, but it’s quite buggy. Not our best work.

Global Game Jam 2017

Shroomy Pleasures

This time our entry for the global game jam was all about Unity’s particle systems and trail renderer.
For the art-side we wanted to go for something shroomy, as it is Stefanie’s specialty.

We also chose to implement the Diversifier “Single Button Play”, as this simplicity in controls is a fun limitation.

2016

InnoGames Game Jam #10

Wanz Upon a Time

The goal is to jump into the portal and thus reach the next level.
The bug can only jump and release its body parts in the air in order to block the gears.

This project includes fun physics including a way to detect, when the player is squished between gears.

Global Game Jam 2016

Same Procedure As Last Jam

Designed for android devices with accelerometer and swipe controls.
Our local jamsite’s last theme was “strange rituals”. The GGJ16’s theme is “ritual”.
Our protagonist is a gamedev, who is too late for the next gamejam and cannot wait to hear the next jam’s theme 😉

2015

InnoGames Game Jam #9

The Art of Homunculi

In order to bring back a loved one from the dead, you turn to forbidden alchemy.
By solving smaller puzzles you get additional hints to solve the large mystery of resurrecting a human being.

This project contains many mini games, which must be solved, to unlock the main puzzle.

Mini Ludum Dare 62

A swarm of enemies in Flying Weapon.

Flying Weapon

Flying Weapons is a cross-platform 2d shoot-em-up in a 3d world.
It is designed and tested with XBox Controllers and Android Phones with Accelerometers.

This project is a good example of a simple 2D shooter.
