Misogyny and Mountain Dew: How GAME_JAM Imploded

Jared Rosen at Indie Statik:

Let’s get started.

The fascinating story of how a TV production company tried to make a corporate-branded, fake-drama reality show about game jams with some genuinely nice indie developers. Spoiler: it doesn’t end well.
