TEST RUN welcomed 87 friends and family to GlitchHQ on Sunday, August 7th to celebrate the accomplishments of the Summer ’16 Immersion Program cohort!

After learning new skills throughout the program, the cohort was challenged to apply their new knowledge in a 24-hour jam. Each team built a playable game prototype and developed a business plan. At TEST RUN, teams pitched their projects to a panel of judges, and answered questions from the audience.

TEST RUN wrapped up with game demos, socializing, and delicious snacks — so delicious, we ate 10 pounds of cheese in under one hour! If you weren’t able to join us, or just want your chance at a replay, check out the game project links below.

An extra special thanks and shout-out to our guest judges Matt Hohl (Senior Producer, Activision) and Jehra Patrick (Program Director, Walker Art Center)!
