Congratulations to everyone who took part in the recent Global Game Jam. The Georgia locations each nominated teams and games for the GGDA's annual Best in Georgia competition. Each team was paired with industry mentors and had until the end of February to keep developing its game. At the end of the month, in the closest voting we have ever had, our judges chose two teams to split the prizes.

The Best in Georgia Nominees

Georgia State University (Co-winner): Mop Boys

Kennesaw State University (Co-winner): Hatch

SCAD-Atlanta: Hermstead

SCAD-Savannah: Cor Domus
