1. Playing 6-player Red Ice and watching Stevie score crazy goals
...which I made up for later by losing the Madhouse tournament immediately.

Oh yeah, your rap video! That goes on my list too. Plus I got to trade spectacles with Andy Hull for a few hours and get dizzy.

... Guys, you have to promise not to be too old to go to TIGjam by the time I can join you. Okay guys? Okay?

Is this rap video online yet? I've only heard Danny B's description of it but it sounds amazing.

I would also like to add: Rob Lach demolishing a table with a single kick, and then someone (I forget who) suggesting that it be made into a game titled "Rob Lach Championship Table Kicking". This was such a great group that even taking out the cardboard for recycling was hilarious.

Yeah, in the past I wasn't quite comfortable with the concept of going to a TIGJam due to the fact that I was 16 (and looking somewhat younger...). With the average age of TIGers being mid-late 20s/30s, I wasn't quite sure I'd fit in.

But apparently Bobo (blademasterbobo) didn't have any trouble with it, and he's like our age, so I guess it's all good. Also I have facial hair now; no longer will I be mistaken for a middle schooler.  Wizard

I'm also super happy that I used the jam to make the little tow-truck game and learn about Unity's joint and line renderer systems. As soon as I got home I started implementing the newfound knowledge into my main project Gaia. Undulating vines are much more interesting than static ones Smiley

 - Fuckin' Indie House!
 - Motherfucking Shoot Bastard!
 - Playing in a Magic the Gathering draft and the Madhouse Tournament at the same time (and doing well at the Madhouse Tournament)
 - Getting to the finals in the 0Space Tournament
 - Getting flashpunk advice from the man himself:  Chevy Ray Johnton.
 - Meeting awesome people and getting inspired to work even harder on my games.

I had an amazing time at TIGJam this year. Now that I have been to two of them and some GDCs I have made a bunch of friends so I don't feel out of place at all anymore.

We ended up doing 3 Magic drafts throughout the jam, which was awesome. I was a little ashamed to realize I was the only person that played in all of them, but eh... it was awesome!

I am however, sad that I didn't get a chance to play in the Madhouse tourney again this year. In between Magic games I would peek in and watch a bit of it though. It was probably my favorite part of TIGJam 3, and I heard it was even better this year!

Is this rap video online yet? I've only heard Danny B's description of it but it sounds amazing.

The rap video still needs to be created from the footage we shot. Also, supershigi is polishing up a more final version of the song. I actually still need to record my part of the chorus. I'm pretty excited for the debut. Making it was definitely the highlight of the Jam for me.

The fuckin MADHOUSE tournament was out of control this year and I was actually concerned that we wouldn't get to it at all this time around.  I really want there to be a new and improved (balanced) version of MADHOUSE for next year's tournament because it's actually a really awesome game to play, watch, and commentate  Gentleman

I was 17, and looked like 15, when I the first went to a game jam (PegJam 1.0). Granted, it was in the same city as me which made it fairly easier, but I also went to GDC when I was 18. Generally speaking, from my experience, if you're up for making cool shit and participating, age is irrelevant.

Wish I could have been there this year! Almost went, but couldn't due to $$$ and school. Hopefully next year!
