Adobe Game Jam Winds Through Chicago

The Adobe Gaming team and a host of talented, creative, and colorful developers gathered in the Windy City for the second Adobe Game Jam. Once again we had a great group of enthusiastic designers and developers who built some amazing games using Flash technology!

Five Chi-town teams assembled and worked through the night to show off the high quality games, and in just 24 hours we had a winner! Disaster at CP1 is a firefighting adventure that captured the crowd’s attention with its smooth controls and terrific aesthetics, and the fully playable demo is available online here.

The Starling Framework and Citrus Engine were front and center, serving as a key component in the majority of the Game Jam projects. Thanks again to all attendees for coming out to the Adobe Game Jam and for making our community one of the most innovative and enthusiastic. We really enjoyed seeing the Citrus Engine embraced by the development community and are looking forward to everyone’s next projects!
