We're inviting students to create a video game and submit it to the SG Game Jam. The creator of the best game will win a $500, whilst the second and third place games will each receive a $300 and $200 respectively.

You have full creative freedom to build whatever you'd like. You can work as a team or on your own. If you're looking for a place to start, our friends at Hack Club has a great set of workshops on game development.

Looking for a place to get started? Check out our 60 second introduction to Kaboom!

Submissions are due at 11:59pm SGT (GMT+8) on June 5th. Submissions can be made using Devpost (instructions) and you can contact the organising team if you need support.

Prizes will be distributed through an e-voucher of choice, PayPal transfer, Visa gift card, bank transfer or GrabPay.

The game should be creative and fun to play.
