GGJ 2024 Hong Kong

Cyberport
    • Dear Jammers,

      Over 16 thousand jammers in 759 jam sites in 99 countries participated in Global Game Jam 2024. It is another unique experience in Hong Kong. We had a virtual GGJ + Physical Closing Ceremony at Cyberarena, Cyberport. Hong Kong was the 14th biggest among these locations, with 202 jammers, both students and professional game designers, creating 50 games remotely over the past weekend. During the 144-hour jam, a global theme was announced, teams formed, and an entire game development cycle was completed from ideation to testing, including art design, programming, game design, sound design, user interface design, and testing. This year's theme was the word “Make Me Laugh”.
