TAG JAM 2012 - It's Show Time! - Official thread
























Special Touch Arcade tl;dr

Employees from the critically acclaimed Tag Games and Tagplay development studios are hosting a 24 hour Tag Jam in celebration of the studio's 6th year on the 28th of June (this Thursday). We are hosting a series of video podcasts over the 24 hours in which we will open our doors to you guys so you can see what goes on in a professional video games studio! What's more, we want you to get involved in our video podcasts by posting questions you'd like asked by our teams and employees, some of whom have worked on ground-breaking titles like Grand Theft Auto, Crack Down, Micro Machines V3, State of Emergency, etc, etc.

We will be streaming shows talking to each of the teams, in addition to a special Car Jack Streets 2 programme, a special for Funpark friends, and a 'How to get into the video games industry' show! We would love for you guys to get involved here on this Touch Arcade thread, so post your questions for any of the shows either before, during or after the shows and we'll make sure to ask them and give you a shout out!

WATCH THE PODCAST:

Get involved guys, these shows/video podcasts are for you so you can see what it's like in a games studio and can get your questions answered about the creation of games and working in the industry!

Any questions are welcome!

2 Question for Car Jack Streets:

1. How long after the first game released did you guys consider developing a sequel?

2. What motivated you to make a sequel?

Question for CJS2:

Will we be able to rob banks and store and the like whenever we want? Like could we do it in free roam? And what other things can we do in free roam?

Ha, you know guys? Some of the questions you are asking I was going to ask the guys anyway if no-one had any questions to ask here on Touch Arcade.

Great minds thinking alike!

Also, I am going to be bartering with our Managing Director tomorrow to release some big news during the Car Jack Streets 2 show! It will be worth watching for sure.

But, don't forget, the other shows (meeting the team, talking about Funpark Friends, Getting into the Game's industry, etc) will be extremely insightful if you want to know about the process of games development!

So please, ask any questions you want!

CJS2 Question:

How much freedom will we have? But my main question is about what we get to do while in free roam. Like bank/store robberies, muggings, stealing and selling cars, etc.

What an awesome first show!!

It was a pleasure speaking with Paul, our CEO, and I hope you enjoyed it too!

Who would have thought that Grand Theft Auto was originally going to be a top down racer like Micro Machines and that, originally, you were the police not the bad guy!?

Not even I know that, and I work with Paul every day!

Paul will be back to talk with me about Car Jack Streets 2, but next up you have the chance to meet the teams Awesome Source and Continental Breakfast!

Any questions for the teams? What they are eating to stay awake? Have they had any 'disagreements' yet ? haha
