Event description


Welcome! We would like to invite you to be a part of Puerto Rico's participation in the

2018 Global Game Jam!


  • Create an account on the official website of Global Game Jam (if you don't have one already)
  • Website:

The Global Game Jam is a unique experience that takes place all over the world, in which artists, programmers, game designers, and music composers collaborate in order to create video games throughout an entire weekend based on a specific theme.

No previous experience is required to be able to partcipate and the 3 best games made during the game jam will receieve a special acknowledgement, and possibly, even a prize!

The event will take place at Engine-4 in Bayamón. The space will be accessible at all times throughout the event, there will also be sleeping areas and refreshments. The participants will have to bring their own equipment/software needed to develop their game. Access to WiFi will be available. The participants will also have the option to create a tabletop prototype or a board game.

Participants under 18 years old will have to be accompanied by their legal guardian throughout the whole event. And if you're attending only as a legal guardian, you do not need to purchase a ticket.


Are there minimum age requirements to enter the event?

Yes, the participant must be at least 18 years old. If under 18 years old, the participant must be with their legal guardian throughout the event.

Can I participate remotely?

Yes, but teams who participate remotely are not eligible for prizes (if applicable). If there are at least two members of your team who are participating physically, then you are eligible.

Are there a min or max amount of people per team?

Yes, only up to five people per team are allowed. There is, however, no minimum.

Will there be food at the event?

As it stands, we hope to be able to provide participants with dinner for all three days, and breakfast and lunch for Saturday and Sunday. We also hope to obtain snacks and beverages for participants throughout the course of the event. While it is not 100% certain at the moment, we will let you know if we are able to obtain enough resources.

Will I be able to sleep there or do I have to find a nearby hotel, etc.?

Yes, you will be able to sleep at Engine-4. Just bring a sleeping bag with you and you should be fine.

Do I need to have previous experience to participate?

Not at all, this is a fun learning experience for beginners and veterans alike.

Will there be prizes?

We are still working on that part, so it's still uncertain.

How do I register my team?

There are no team accounts per se. Only individual accounts that are associated with location and game projects. All jammers and oragnizers must have them. Multiple users can be associated with a game.

What happens if I don't get to complete my game?

There's no issue with that. You upload your last playable build to the webpage and hopefully, even after the game jam ends, you'll continue working on your awesome game to completion.

What should I bring?

We recommend that you bring a jacket in case it's too cold, your working equipment (PC, headphones, etc.), notebook and pencil, toothbrush, deodorant, extra clothes, a washcloth (to somewhat clean yourself), bottled water, and snacks, just in case.

Do I have to bring my printed ticket to the event?

Yes, or through the app, so we can verify your registration.
