I think it'd be awesome done as a longer-form version of documentaries like The Barkley Marathons which is about ultramarathoners attempting an event so grueling that only 15 people have completed it since 1986 (it's awesome, go watch it). GAME_JAM could have been a "teams against the challenge" deal with the clock as the antagonist and I think that would have been really engaging.
How do you organize yourselves? How do you budget your time? How compartmentalized vs collaborative do you work? How much do you plan vs how much do you decide to work out as you go? How do you pivot away from something that isn't working and how do you make the decision to do so? How do you resolve creative differences and get everyone on the same page quickly? What unique skills/vision does everyone bring to the table? What kind of itch can a challenge like this scratch, and what do you take away from it?
I actually think these questions are more interesting even than who makes the "best" game at the end. They're CERTAINLY more interesting than, "do you think having a penis helps you to code?" Such a waste of a concept.
It's a bit different than an ultra, but have you watched "The Barkley Marathon: The Race That Eats its Young" on Prime?
It's pretty amazing, I recommend it to anyone that digs documentaries:
>A famous prison escape sparks the idea for a cult-like race that has seen only 10 finishers in its first 25 years. This award-winning, oddly inspiring, and wildly funny documentary reveals the sports world's most guarded secret.
The Barkley Marathons should be available to stream on amazon prime
