    March 20, 2018 Share

    We are proud to have hosted Global Game Jam for the third successive year at our HSR Studio. The Global Game Jam (GGJ) is the world's largest game jam event (game creation) taking place around the world at physical locations. People from different parts of the City came together, shared experiences and showcased their creativity. This universal event started on a high note with passionate gamers giving introduction on their work profile and interest areas. The weekend unfolded a global creative buzz in games while at the same time discovering the course of development, be it programming, iterative design, narrative exploration or artistic expression. It was all compacted into a 48-hour development phase. We encouraged people from all kinds of backgrounds to take part in this event and contribute to this global spread of game development and creativity.

    On the 23rd January, the event started with a short video of leading game developers sharing their experience and advice. The theme of the event was provided after the completion of the introduction. The theme of the jam, “What do we do now?” provided a tough challenge, with teams building games from every genre. Participants were segregated in groups. The challenge was to complete the games by Sunday, 25th January. The jam is known for encouraging new friendships, boost confidence and opportunities within the community. People were invited to explore new technology tools, trying on new roles in development and testing their skills to do something that requires them to design, develop, creating, testing and making a new game in the time span of 48 hours. We witnessed some fine games created by the game developers. Overall it was yet another splendid event that took place in our Studio. We are looking forward to creating many more such advancements in the gaming industry.
