Hong Kong gamers pull out all stops at Global Game Jam

Cyberport was very pleased to be part of the Global Game Jam, hosting the Hong Kong segment of the fun worldwide event, which saw the creation of over 3,000 games in just one week in late January.

Themed "We don't see things as they are, we see things as we are," this year's Global Game Jam attracted 23,774 participants worldwide with Hong Kong attracting 113 jammers and creating 19 games.  Hong Kong was considered the 37th biggest site among 488 locations in 72 countries.

An annual event run by Global Game Jam, a California based organisation, the event draws together individuals from all walks of life to create video games and non-digital games such as board games and card games within 48 hours.   Participants experience everything from ideation to testing including art design, programming, game and sound design and user interface design and testing.

The jam wrapped up following a two hour award ceremony during which sponsors recognized the excellent work of particularly productive teams.  Prizes were given to the most innovative theme integration, the most solid piece for well implemented asceticism and other mentions for innovation and strong visual.

Many of these games were later developed into commercial products or inspired new ideas.

In collaboration with the Hong Kong Polytechnic University's School of Design, Cyberport tenant, Outblaze, was a sponsor of some of the grand prizes.
