Welcome our fellow Singaporean creatives to our second run of Heritage Game Jam!

After seeing last year's collection of games and everyone's interest in having another Game Jam, the Sagakaya Collective is happy to be organising it again for the community this year!

For those who are new to us: we are fellow game designers who are keen in using the medium of Games to talk about Singapore culture and heritage: past, present, and future. Not just as a setting or a backdrop – but featuring our culture and society. Through Games, we allow players to reflect on what identity is as a Singaporean.

Here are some details you should know about this year's Game Jam!

  • The Game Jam lasts from 12 Nov 2021, 1900hrs – 21 Nov 2021, 1900hrs. Sign up sheet is here!

  • Everyone walks away with something - all participants will receive a care package while winners of this Game Jam will win prizes, both generously provided by our lovely sponsors.

  • ANYONE can participate - even if you aren't a traditional game designer or know how to program!
    We will team you up with other people that can, OR (this is new for this run), we are allowing tabletop / board / card game submissions this year!

  • We are providing a team of professional advisors from various creative industries, who can advice you on Game Design, Programming, Narrative Writing, Art, Culture and Audio Design

  • Non-Singaporeans are welcome to participate – but please be respectful in your content and design!


Meanwhile, you can email us any queries at: heritagegamejamsg@gmail.com

Hope to see you there!
