Facebook partnered with us in the final weeks before their new Instant Games platform went public for a 48-hour game jam – “The Instant Games Jam” – in their New York City headquarters. Participants were tasked with creating games that take advantage of the technology and social/multiplayer features offered by Instant Games. This culminated with the developers joining Facebook in their booth at GDC 2018 in San Francisco showing off the games they made and talking to other developers about their experience with the platform. Watch the recap.

What wasn’t possible for mobile before is now made possible with 5G cloud gaming. Playcrafting partnered with Verizon Open Innovation for an exclusive 48 hour game jam with 20 of New York’s top game developers. The jam brought together 5 teams of 4 developers to create 5 games total that are only possible with 5G. The only limitation of this jam was that there was no limitations. As a result, developers generated games with layered effects and mechanics that showed how 5G allows for games streaming to mobile devices with essentially unlimited bandwidth and near-zero latency.
