The Global Game Jam
Local multiplayer game Starwhal: Just the Tip was first created during Global Game Jam 2013 (#ggj13) at Carleton School of Information Technology Ottawa, Canada. The Breakfall team got inspired by #GGJ13 theme 'the sound of a heartbeat' and: "Inspired by countless couch-gaming gatherings over the decades, we wanted to bring something competitive, creative, and immediately fun to the table. Our original prototype was conceived and developed in 48 hours with focus entirely on these areas. STARWHAL: Just the Tip is a simulation of dreams in an ocean of the mind." After initial success the game got its own Arcade cabinet at Fantastic Arcade and was selected for the Gamercamp 2013 & Wild Rumpus showcases.
