A weekend of intense game making

Hello again, fellow game developers! We have some amazing news for you, as there are now 81 registrants from the Philippines on the Manila Game Jam registration site! Our Game Jam Seminar last Saturday was a hit with over 70 attendees, some of whom registered on-site and pushed our site to #11 on the list of most participants around the world (and as of today we’re at #9)! We are thrilled by this overwhelming response, but at the same time we have some bad news: we simply don’t have the resources to accept any more participants. We will have to cut off our registrants to anyone who registered before today.

However, this doesn’t mean you can’t participate in the Game Jam! You’re still free to register on the site and get together with some friends at a location around the Philippines for 48 hours, and then submit a game along with our Manila Game Jam participants. While you won’t be eligible to present your game and win any awards, you will still have the sense of satisfaction of having finished a game in two days, and we can stay in the top ten list of GGJ sites around the world!

We’d like to thank the talented and knowledgeable speakers who shared their time and experience: Sony Valdez, Paul Gadi, Jay Gavarra and Caroline Dy each spoke about their areas of expertise, and the attendees learned quite a bit from them. We’d also like to thank our sponsors, for enabling us to put something like this together for you. You can view pictures taken from seminar through this link.

Thank you so much for your interest in the Game Jam! We look forward to seeing what you guys come up with this weekend!

  1. NOOOOOO! I still have a couple of students who haven’t registered… arggg…

    Re-Open Sesame!

  2. Hi Francis, So sorry for that, but we really can’t accept more people eh. đŸ˜¦

    But since they’re your students maybe you guys can have a mini gamejam of your own. Last year in Kansas city there was a game jam site, with TWO people!

  3. For those who have not registered, are they allowed to attend and participate at all?

    I mean, will they be allowed in the premises to work and sleep? What if I find someone who is registered but is no longer attending, can my students take up their slot?

    Regards,

  4. Hi Francis,

    First off thanks a lot for your enthusiasm! I only wish we had the facilities to accept everyone. Unfortunately we have to juggle the number of participants with the quality of the experience, which is never an easy thing to do.

    Right now our cap for participants is 60. Pre-registered participants will have priority, but by around 6PM we will allow people who are on site that have not registered on the list.
