What is the Global Game Jam?

The GGJ brings together talented individuals from within your community. It is a unique opportunity for people to push their skills and challenge their way of working. Participants work concurrently with developers around the globe; we rally around a central theme, and then have 48 hours to create a game. It's our hope that we will see some very experimental realized prototypes that you can continue to work on after the jam. Many games developed in previous Game Jams have become fully realized games. The GGJ is open source, hardware & software agnostic and all projects are protected under a Creative Commons license. We encourage people to try out new ideas and push themselves, within reason. We also strongly encourage participants to remember to eat and sleep, to stay at their best!

When is the Global Game Jam?

The GGJ is an annual event. The GGJ 2018 will be on January 26th and goes for ~48 hours through January 22, 2018.

Do I need to come to GGJ with a team already formed?

We encourage you to come without a team and get to know some of your local peers.

Do I need special skills to participate in the GGJ?

Although having computer skills is helpful, code experience is not necessary. Designers, developers, artists and anyone is welcome to try their hand at making a game during the GGJ.

Is the GGJ only for professionals?

No. Everyone is welcome.

What is the program of GGJ Hong Kong 2018?

Please see the schedule here

Can I stay overnight?

Yes you can! Some of our volunteers will be available throughout the night and the most ambitious jammers definitely stay overnight. Just bring your own sleeping back or similar. Unfortunately we cannot provide shower facilities this time, so make sure to take care of your hygiene.

How to get to Cyberport?

We organise buses from Hong Kong island to Cyberport and back every day.

What to eat?

Having Cyberport as a jamsite partner we are able to provide you drinks and snacks throughout the event. Access to food in close vicinity. Pretty neat, huh?!?!

How do I log into the site?

You sign up on the site as an individual. Registration for jammers is now open. Create a new account or login here.

How do I tell the system my location and full name information?

Every user must fill out a profile which is available from your account page. The profile asks for your full name and has a drop-down menu to choose your location. Additionally, you can write a public biography about yourself under "My account".

Who owns the intellectual property of games made during GGJ?

The team/makers of the game hold all IP rights. However, the Global Game Jam may use the games for demonstration as it sees fit. All games must be posted in the condition they are in as of the close of the GGJ event (Sunday). If the team/makers of the game wish to upload subsequent versions, they are welcome and we will host and archive them. All participants and all games entered for GGJ must agree to a Creative Commons, share, alter, no sell license.

Is there a cut-off date as to when we can join the Global Game Jam?

Register as soon as you can. We strongly encourage everyone to register as soon as they can confirm their participation. This allows us to better prepare the facilities and volunteers for the correct number of participants.


The Global Game Jam is supposed to be fun and collaborative, with a goal to keep things very simple. We provide structure, guidance and help for all locations participating in the GGJ. As a rule, we expect that no team/makers of a game will illegally exploit others' IP, and that in turn, everything created becomes part of the public domain. All participants agree that their participation in the Global Game Jam will hold no one liable for any loss or damage.
The Global Game Jam reserves the right to refuse to allow anyone or any jam location to participate at any time for any reason or no reason at all. This includes after the game jam has already started.
