We used Unity during the jam because it was something we all had experience with, but we've always found it tedious to build larger projects in it & so wanted to remake it in something more suitable.
@DrMelon recommended we try Otter after he used it for a platformer project (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZsvsH71JTkk).

It was an easy switch over because we'd been writing in C# for Unity anyway, and allowed us to do a lot of more advanced stuff really easily (I especially like how easy it is to add screenshake).
After using Otter I think it'll be my go-to prototyping engine for game jams and such.

Awesome job with it! :)

Me and my mates remade our original Unity Global Game Jam 2015 entry in Otter!

Here's the Otter remake:

Here's the Unity original version for comparison:

The game is about being bad at magic.  It combines physical and digital play; players have to look up the spell combinations in the spell books, enter them on the custom controller & then aim and cast using a Leap Motion Controller which is tracking the wands.
