The Jammies are a celebration of all the amazing games produced at Dev Night and within our community. A series of specialized awards are given out by a committee, and the Game of the Year is decided by popular vote. Jammies are our way of showcasing the tremendously creative and diverse game developers here in Philadelphia!
When someone as swell as Aaron Chapin leaves a community, it’s only natural for legends to be made about them. Aaron’s Quest is the greatest of those odes. This side-scrolling action game by Chris LaPollo, Bryan Pham, Kotaro Fujita and Edward Gauge puts you in the size 8 shoes of the expat engineer as he makes his way from Philadelphia to Germany. Not only does it reflect the energy that Aaron brought to every Dev Night, it’s streamlined design and keen execution encapsulate the development tenants he championed. It’s also a more fun than a barrel of code monkeys.
