30 July 2020 Update

Hello Heritage Game Jam Participants,

Due to the unexpected high volume of participants, we are moving the Opening and Networking Event to Zoom instead of Discord.
Discord can only hold a maximum of 50 participants, whereas Zoom can hold 300.
Zoom can be opened in a web browser if you do not wish to install it.
After the Opening/Networking event, all communication will still continue to take place in the SGGA Discord .
Therefore, please continue to use Discord for the rest of the Game Jam.

At 31st July 2020, 1900 hrs, please join Zoom here:

Welcome!

Hi fellow Singaporean game designers and game lovers!

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.

· The Game Jam lasts from 31 July 2020, 1900hrs – 7 August 2020, 1900hrs. Sign up sheet is below or here!

· Winners of this Game Jam will win prizes (CONFIRMED)
Prize winners positions: Top 3 games + Best in Game Design, Audio/Music Design, Art, and Narrative Writing

· The best games will be featured in an upcoming virtual Games exhibition this October 2020, which showcases locally developed games to the rest of the world!

· Game Jam will have a team of professional Mentors, who can advice you on Game Design, Programming, Narrative Writing, Art, and Audio Design

· Non-Game Design friends may also participate! We can team them up with other Game Design teams, so do invite them!

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