The Royal Ontario Museum will be hosting a Game Jam in October. You can check out full details on their site.
"Bring natural history to life at the Royal Ontario Museum this October! The ROM, in partnership with the University of Toronto, is opening its doors to game developers for the third annual (and FINAL) ROM Game Jam. ROM Game Jam is a three-day event from October 2 - 4 where participants are challenged to create digital games that animate the museum’s exhibits.
Here’s the beta: Spend three days inside the ROM creating games that animate its exhibitions, including overnight access during Nuit Blanche. Explore over 30 galleries of the museum containing millions of specimens. Learn about the history of these specimens directly from ROM experts. Have the opportunity to showcase your game in a Toronto cultural institution with an audience of thousands."
Registration starts August 14th.
