Exploring the theme of “Five minutes to…”, the winners of the DreamHack Dallas Jam will have players saving lives, repairing starships, and defusing bombs with only a few minutes.
The DreamHack Dallas jam resulted in forty-six sharp games about how to spend five minutes, exploring the lives of murderous flies, hungry symbiotes, and stopping trains. Of these entries, one wins a grand cash prize, and the top six games will be showing at the GameJolt booth at DreamHack Dallas in a few months.
Here’s the super special winners (although do check out all of the other interesting entries).
Ambuuu (1st Place, $1000USD Prize)
“The goal of Ambuuu is to save as many people as possible by picking them up in your Ambulance. Run into someone to pick them up and bring them back to the hospital before the time runs out in this hectic physics adventure. Play long enough and you may experience the very intense AMBUUU mode!”
“Magas McFly is a detective action adventure where your goal is to find the killer in the mansion in 5 minutes!
So be quick and watch closely for details! Cause you need to recognize the killer yourself with your eyes!”
“You are a government agent and your job is to interrogate suspects. You only have 5 minutes to find out how to defuse a bomb or find kidnapped hostages.”
“Crash landed on an unknown planet, you arm your trusty drone to recover parts for your ship. What danger lies on this planet? Collect upgrades and fix the ship within 5 minutes!”
“You play as a lone Marshall that has to save a hijacked supply train from a hostile bandit take over before time runs out! These bandits only have use for what they can carry, and the rest is heading straight for a old broken bridge high above a rapid raging river. Can YOU pull the brakes in time?”
Symbiote (Honorable Mention)
“Born from the womb of evil, feed the brood with the most delightful meat : humans.”
