Thanks to Ria Lu’s twitter, I’ve just discovered that budding game designers in Manila have their own version of… well, I don’t quite think NaNoWriMo would be a fair comparison, so let’s just say something akin to the 24 Hour Comic Challenge from a ways back.  This year, Manila will be participating in the Global Game Jam by holding an event from late this Friday (January 29) to Sunday (January 31) at the UP Information Technology Training Center. You can find more details at this website as well as a handy FAQ (which mentions that while registration is nominally at 2:00 p.m., as long as you can make it to Friday by 8 p.m. you’re fine.)

They’ll start uploading the finished products (to the global site I presume?) around 3 p.m. Sunday. Here’s hoping for some SF games in the crop…  I want my Kangkong vs. Kapre game ASAP!
