Hatsune Miku 10th Anniversary Game Jam

Saturday, October 21st – 28th 

To celebrate the 10th anniversary of Hatsune Miku we’ve partnered with the creators to throw an epic game jam!

If you love anime, music, meeting new people, or making games with your friends a game jam is the place to be! Costume contest. Special prizes. Music and more.

Since her release on August 31st, 2007, Hatsune Miku has traveled an interesting path from vocal synthesizer product to beloved collaboratively constructed cyber celebrity. She is often called a global icon or ‘hub’, because the culture around her encourages a worldwide creative community to produce and share Miku-related content.

  • 130,000+ Units sold of music software.
  • 2,500,000+ fans on Facebook.
  • Millions of songs, artwork, and videos shared online by creators around the world.
  • Sold-out 3D concerts worldwide with performances in Tokyo, LA, New York, Jakarta, Shanghai, Taipei, Mexico City, Toronto…

Participants have a full week to design and refine. Start on October 21st and join us October 28th at the Trick or Treat: Halloween Expo from 2-7pm to playtest, finalize and present your game! In addition to special prizes, a representative from the team behind Hatsune Miku will be on-site to judge the competition. Sign up today! Tweet along with us @playcrafting #Mikujam.
