The ReVersed Game Jam, happening next week, gets some love from the biggest gamedev in Austria: Bongfish! This ensures that we can offer all of our jammers some food & drinks, as well as make sure that RaumD, always maintained by monochrom & the QDK, get the funding they deserve, in these trying political times.. Thanks Bongfish!
