GBC Toronto Global Game Jam 2018

  • George Brown College 341 King Street East Floor 5 & 6 Toronto, ON M5A Canada (map)

The International Game Developers Association will be hosting their Global Game Jam, which you can check out here. You can register at the Eventbrite for the free event.

The Global Game Jam® (GGJ) is the world's largest game jam event (game creation) taking place around the world at physical locations. Think of it as a hackathon focused on game development. It is the growth of an idea that in today’s heavily connected world, we could come together, be creative, share experiences and express ourselves in a multitude of ways using video games – it is very universal. The weekend stirs a global creative buzz in games, while at the same time exploring the process of development, be it programming, iterative design, narrative exploration or artistic expression. It is all condensed into a 48 hour development cycle. The GGJ encourages people with all kinds of backgrounds to participate and contribute to this global spread of game development and creativity.
