The Theme

Theme What Just Happened
The Outside Looks In

Toronto Standard
First time jammer and many time journalist Andrew Webster captures the spirit of TOJam: "I can't wait to play your monstrosity". A MUST READ.



Torontoist
Jaime Woo interviews us TOJam founders, and explores our roots. When not writing, twittering, or cooking, Jaime organizes Gamercamp and forallgamerssake.



Paul Hillier
Professional photographer Paul wrote this brilliant photo short story of his experience. You'll likely recognize some of his photos.



Ryan Creighton
Veteran TOJammer Ryan brings his 5 year old daughter to TOJam 6. The results are magical. I'll let Ryan explain.



Matt Rix
Sponsor and jammer Matt Rix writes about creating ambitious HTML5 multiplayer gameshow What Just Happened?! One of the most impressive TOJam games ever made.



Golden Gear
TOJam ambassador Andrew Traviss writes a detailed post-mortem about making Poppycock, including wisdom about his last 5 TOJams. Andrew and Alex are two key reasons we keep jamming.



Newton64.ca
This was Nick Rudzicz's first jam, and hopefully not last. His TOJam Dev Journal and post mortem shed light on flying solo. Nick is like a Montreal me, helping organize both The Mount Royal Game Society and The Prince Of Arcade.



The Grid TO
Embedded journalist Steve Kupferman details his experience. Steve's been covering us since the beginning, and we can't thank him enough for always going above and beyond.



Jason P. Kaplan
After finishing a game on Saturday, Jason suddenly teamed up with Droqen on Sunday. This is their story. Jason organizes the Game Prototype Challenge. More importantly, he created the best way to pass time on your iPad.



Colin Cupp
Sponsor Mochi Media sent Colin on a suicide mission. He lived long enough to write this lovely recap - including photos!



Loftless.com
Irrepressible Robert Merkus-Klimm explains why he keeps attending. His game looks great, and supports Unity network multiplayer.



ALTdotCOMEDY Lounge
Every Monday @ 9:00pm, the back of the Rivoli features the greatest stand-up on earth. The day after after the jam finished, some jammers went. Comedian Bryan Hatt started a joke by asking "if there were any Americans in the audience?" American TOJammer Angelo Yazar answered, leading to confusion.



The Mount Royal Game Society
Despite our name, a growing contingent of Montreal game makers continues to attend. We are extremely honoured to host such crazy talent. ToMoJam?



Dale Wick
For good or ill, Dale Wick recorded and uploaded the entire opening speech. We had so many people, the speech was delivered outside in the Autodesk loading bay.
3 Parts (~15 minutes total):    Part 1    Part 2    Part 3
Warning: It's tough to hear us, and we're boring!





That's a mighty fine logo. Thanks Blambot Big Bloke.
