VR Austin Jam 2018 Showcase – Monday, November 19 (TICKETS HERE)


The VR Austin Jam brings local, national, and international creators together to collaborate on new virtual and augmented reality content every fall. We grew to over 100 jammers last year, and this year we’re looking to expand to accommodate even more awesome developers.

Over the course of a weekend attendees will create new VR/AR experiences in teams or as individuals, and we’ll show off completed projects to the public at the VR Austin Jam Showcase on Monday evening.

The VR Austin Jam isn’t a contest or an all-night hackathon. This is a fun, safe, collaborative space, where brilliant creative people of all types and levels get together to make mind-blowing experiences. If you want to make VR or AR games, animations, films, or experiences, we invite you to attend! Meet new people, learn new things, and be a part of the vibrant immersive reality development scene in Austin, TX.


The jam this year will be at the Austin Film Society Cinema Event Hall located at:

6259 Middle Fiskville Rd

Austin, TX 78752


Can I join in the jam?

Short answer: yes. Game jams require people from all disciplines and backgrounds. Whether you’re creating music, art, code, video, weird interactive experiments, or just looking to expand and learn, you’re welcome!
