Café Carnage was developed as part of the 2015 Global Gam Jam, and the University of Southampton site in Hampshire, UK. The game was developed, playtested and created in 48 hours by Marco Caldarelli, Simon George and Dickson Chui.

We thank all of our playtesters (Tom Blount, Roanne Hyde, Jon Davies, Phil Quarrell, Ka-Ming Liu) and the other Southampton game jammers for their helpful discussion and suggestions!
