You have registered or are about to register for Hong Kong’s 10th Global Game Jam event! Welcome back if you have joined us in the past! The event is organized by PolyU Computing in collaboration with Cyberport and PolyU Design.
WHAT WILL HAPPEN?
After the theme and diversifiers of the jam are announced, there will be time for brainstorming. Participants will then get to share their ideas and form groups based on the ideas they like the most. The main goal is to bring different expertise areas together.
This is supposed to be a fun and relaxing event (although it will be pretty crazy and hectic, too!). So, let's gather in a collaborative spirit and be open to sharing our tips and comments with other groups as well. Global Game Jam is not a competition. Instead, this is a possibility to show the global community what kind of talent and potential Hong Kong has!
