The Toronto Game Jam is a FREE, annual, open-to-the-public event
where the craziest game makers in the world gather for a 3 day game making binge.
and Woo explain things best.
We're a pressure cooker that strengthens (or destroys) friendships, produces amazing games, and breeds goats.
"TOJam Hindsight is 2020" took place May 8 - 10, 2020 online.
It will take more than a worldwide pandemic to slow TOJammers down!
Watch this space and @torontogamejam.
Contact if puzzled or overwhelmed.

If you're part of TOJam (jammed, veteran jammer, sponsor),
there's a private Discord. We're figuring out what to do with it, we've got planz!
We're ONLINE this year.
This may or may not be related to a worldwide pandemic.
470+ registered and are jamming RIGHT now.
If you're jamming, there's a private and very active Discord.
If you're not jamming, there's Twitter and Twitch (see schedule).
Those are for jammers as well. Ackward.
Toronto based SideFX is once again offering all TOJammers a trial indie license of their procedural gamedev tool Houdini!
Houdini's procedural node-based workflow (used by AAA and indies) offers a smarter and faster way to create high quality game art.
Perfect for a game jam! Houdini is a procedural pipeline-in-a-box where all the steps needed to set up a model or game level are represented by networks of nodes.
These nodes can be maintained deep into production, making last minute creative decisions easy.
