Event FAQ

What is a Game Jam?

The Global Game Jam® (GGJ) is the world's largest game jam event taking place simultaneously around the world at hundreds of physical locations.
With the VR Edition hosted by VR Philippines, participants are expected to create games for Virtual and Augmented Reality.
If you have no previous experience with VR/AR, you can join the free workshop scheduled 1 week before the jam.
This event is open to all. Wheter you are a students or professionals, complete beginner or experienced artist/developer/designer, as long as you have the passion to create games, you are welcome!
