How Ice Boy taught me that Work Ethic > Skill

This is the story of my second Newgrounds game jam, back in 2010.

I wrote it on Medium just because I think everything looks pretty there, but I'd love to hear your feedback or any comments!

I thought it would be fitting to share it here, looking back over all those years, and deeply grateful for my experience with ShadowGamer2, KoolGuyKai and VhsTapeclock

Damn. Crazy to see it all typed out like that. It's weird to think that game jam was so long ago too. Feels like it was just a little while ago. Glad to see you got as much from the experience as I did :)

OmarShehata responds:

I was hoping you'd get a chance to read it! It is quite strange to look back at it and realize it was so long ago!

Love this! Really gotta put a new Game Jam on the calendar!!!

OmarShehata responds:

Thanks Tom! It's a story that I've told verbally countless times and decided to finally write it down. And definitely, Newgrounds Game Jams always have a very different community-feel.
