The Global Game Jam (GGJ) was held on 26 – 28 January. This year, over 42 thousand jammers from 804 jam sites located in 109 countries participated. The GGJ allows jammers to get together in their respective regions, form teams and develop games in the time span of 48 hours under a global theme announced on-site. The GGJ HK was organised by Cyberport and SD of PolyU, attracting 339 jammers to create 59 games at Cyberport. It was the sixth biggest among all locations worldwide.

“Love in the Game Jam” is a VR game for which players have to match couples with Cupid’s arrows within limited time. Our students demonstrated strong team spirit and programming skills during the game development cycle from ideation, testing to implementation.
