What is TOJam?

The Toronto Independent Game Jam (TOJam) 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. Webster, Kupferman, Creighton, and Woo explain things best.

"Party like it's 19 TOJam 9" will be held April 25 - 27 at George Brown College. Registrations will go live Thursday, April 3rd, and we'll announce everything loudly (twitter, e-mail).

TOJam attracts a mix of hobbyists, students, and professionals. For some, it's an opportunity to try new ideas, for others it's a chance to focus. For everyone, it's a grand old time.

After the event, we showcase all the games at the public TOJam Arcade.
I want to Attend
We're looking for coders, artists, musicians, designers - anyone that has game making ability. You can attend solo, or with a team. If you're an artist or musician without a team, consider attending as a floater. Can't make games? Problem solved.

The goal is to FINISH a good, small, game in 3 Days.

TOJam IS NOT a competition, conference, or learning opportunity.
The crazy deadline is all the competition you need.

TOJam IS all about harnessing your existing knowledge to produce the best game possible. The deadline, combined with the talents of everyone attending, produces results. We consider the jam a kick-start, and want everyone to continue polishing their diamonds in the rough.

TOJam provides the motivation, you provide the Magic.
