What is The Oculus Game Jam?

  • Because it is as important as programing for the development of a game, people with other skill that programing will be of extreme importance.
    -“But I am not a programmer” you were thinking not to participate, just stop there! WE NEED YOU!
    -3D modeler, designer, plan builder, are really in demand during the event.

    no worries, we really invite you to participate.
