You have registered or are about to register for Hong Kong’s 9th 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.

We have recently updated the participant checklist on our blog, please see it here If you google for 'game jam tips' you can find more good advice. In case you have questions regarding any of the points, do not hesitate to contact us through [email protected]


The game jam will take place online.

You can find the updated breakdown for the event


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! 

If for some reason you are not attending GGJHK after you registered, please let us know asap: [email protected]
