Whiskered Away – Global Game Jam Winner To Be Featured at GDC Play

"Whiskered Away" created at the 2017 Phoenix Global Game Jam.

Congratulations to UAT Game Studios development team who took first place in the Phoenix Global Game Jam held at UAT on January 20-22.

A week from now, the devs will leave for GDC Play in San Fransisco, California to show off their new game, “Whiskered Away,” as the Game Jam’s grand prize sponsored by Clique API.

“Whiskered Away” takes place on a beach with cute, colorful cats who are collecting shiny coins that belong to Poseidon. The cats must avoid Poseidon’s wrath as he throws waves at the cats trying to pull them out to sea. If the cats are successful in collecting coins, Poseidon will be teased by some bratty laughing dolphins.

Game designer Kenny Ryan said, “The game jam was a great experience for all of us collaborating with each of our different disciplines. Some of us had worked together before, but never this close and it was such a blast! We are extremely excited that the whole team will be attending and we plan to make the most of our GDC trip.”
