Collaborate with our Community

Go hands-on with our massive community of developers!

The Playcrafting community includes thousands of game creators that are actively making and releasing games. These talented developers are hungry to work with the latest technology and the biggest brands to create new exclusive games.

The combination of our community and a track record of renowned local and industry events enable us to recruit and organize top-tier developers to deliver an experience and content that is unparalleled. We organize the largest Global Game Jam site in the United States and produce our own industry-recognized events like Play NYC and The Bit Awards. This has given rise to a new way for us to work with brands of all shapes and sizes. We gather a hand-selected group of the top developers in our community to create games using the latest tools, technologies and themes for exclusive in-person and online jams, including a full video package showcasing the entire experience.

The Instant Games Jam + Facebook Games Booth
Partner: Facebook

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.

5G Jam with Verizon
Partner: Verizon 5G Lab

What wasn’t possible for mobile before is now made possible with 5G cloud gaming. Playcrafting partnered with the Verizon 5G Lab 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.
