    I caught last years event, absolutely loved the winner of 2010. The game Resonance. Reminds me of the game Crayon Physics. The whole feel and music of the game is very similar to this. I think the name Resonance really ticked the boxes with me since I am in a World of Warcraft Guild called this so naturally it caught my eye.

    I see I have missed 2011s Global Game Jam :(. Looking up to next year then.
