I am honored to have been included as one of the keynote videos shown at this year's Global Game Jam. I was pretty much blown away to be in the same line up as Richard Lemarchand and Jenova Chen. Humbled indeed! I loved the illustrations by Noji in Richard's keynote. And what an incredible event to be a part of.
