Minicade | 2014-2015
Game Jams are events in which small teams of individuals create tiny games over a short period of time. Unfortunately, it can be hard for newcomers to make their first game; it can also be difficult to showcase the final output of the event.
Minicade attempts to solve these problems by allowing anyone to use their Web-based tool of choice to create their game and add it to a “playlist” of mini-games that can be played as one giant game. Additionally, it consists of the Minigame Maker, which is a mobile-friendly way to create such games using a simple block-based visual programming language, and subsequently “level up” by examining the generated HTML5 source code of their game and tinkering with it.
