What is TOJam?

"TOJam: What Twelves Below" took place May 5 - 7, 2017 at George Brown College. TOJam 13 will be held around the same time in 2018, registrations likely opening late March. Watch this website and @torontogamejam for updates.

The Toronto 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. 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. We've been doing this every year for 12 years for reasons no-one truly remembers.

Want to attend and make a game? Simply register late March 2013.
Lack game making skills and still want to attend and make a game?
Simply register late March 2013, and plan on learning and using Scratch, Twine, Texture or GameMaker at the jam. You can do it (i'm serious)!

Weiss, Webster, Kupferman, Creighton, and Woo explain TOJam best.
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.
