We are a two person indie game developer based in The Netherlands. This was our first year that we went as a team of 2 to participate in the global game jam.
It was a bit scary at first. Having a bigger team can really support you, especially in a psychological way. A lot of pressure rests on your shoulders as in, “what if we can’t come up with a good idea…”. If you are in a bigger team of lets say 6 or 8, maybe you won’t even have to.
I wanted to talk about why we choose to be a team of two, and why its great, but while typing this I decided the share some tips with you. Realizing these aspects of game jams helped us a lot, so maybe it will help you too!
