Congratulations to all who participated!! Especially to @WhoseTrade:eyes: I had a team of four which began but sadly did not finish before the deadline… but it was a fun experience!

I hope that there are many more game jams like this in the near future. I’ll definitely participate in future game jams. Anyways, well done to everyone! :snowman:

If you’re curious, I did the terrain work in the game… here was the map!

The original DevForum post announcing the Holiday Game Jam makes mention of the top 10 contestants being announced - has this changed since the original post was made, or will the remaining 5 in the top 10 be announced subsequently?
