The first and only Acknex gamejam
Who we are...
We are a bunch of people who got to know each other as fellow users of the Acknex game engine. After a lot of exchange on the Acknex boards for several years we finally decided to meet and present our projects in 2009. AckCon was born.
Many things have changed since then.
From 2012 on we started focusing on a party coded weekend project making fun of the Acknex lead developer ("jcl"), as presentations became less with every year. The event turned out to be even more fun this way and we infected more and more people since.
With more advanced game engines showing up on the market, people went different ways. Some of us are making games for a living now, others still work on hobby projects with different game engines, and a few of us completely left the scene to go for serious business.
But for one weekend every year, we are all back - firing up good old MED, SED, WED and acknexing all day and night.
We are AckCon.
