What is TOJam?

"TOJam Hindsight is 2020" took place May 8 - 10, 2020 ONLINE.
It was incredible.

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 15 years for reasons no-one truly remembers.

Weiss, Webster, Kupferman, Creighton, and Woo explain TOJam best.
I want to Attend
You'll need to wait until May 2021.
Watch this website and @torontogamejam for updates.
TOJams happen only once a year, otherwise we would die.

We're looking for coders, beginners, artists, kids, musicians, crafters, designers... YOU!. Attend solo, with a team, or somehow otherwise! If you're an artist or musician without a team, consider attending as a floater. Worried you don't have the skillz? YOU HAVE THE SKILLZ! Use Scratch, Twine, Texture or GameMaker - they're FUN! You can do it, I believe in you.

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.
