Of course you read Dork Shelf
not an idiot
They review films, comics and games with uncommon honesty and thoughtfullness.
I'm an uabashed fan of Eric Weiss
, who wrote the only decent review of No Man's Sky
Despite odds, Dork Shelf continues to cover the entire
Toronto Gaming scene - they're freaking heroes.
This year, Eric Weiss
covered Jarryd Huntley
's border troubles,
and Christopher Demelo
uncovered the rest
- including the fact that veteran jammer Michael Patoine survived cancer last year.
So glad Michael was able to come back and jam this year. His team created Show OFF!
a quick, unique, story driven game where you attempt to sabotage a play. When your best plans backfire, the writing will make you smile.
is an award winning composer that floated at this year's TOJam.
He worked with 4 teams, and apparently none of them were able to finish a game!
Rather than dwell on this depressing outcome, Jake has placed the 7 music tracks he created on SoundCloud
for all to hear.
Some fabulous work (I love "Prospect of Failure - Main Theme") that will hopefully find a home someday.
The Internet is playing TOJam games!
"Crime and Punishment", "Escargolf", "The Peak", "Tanks for the Memories", "Recipe GIF" and Jelly Jelly".
She returned to fully climb The Peak, experienced an existential ending
, leading to a long forgotten poem
"Dying Light", "Snackoil Salesman", "Disappointing Your Dad", and "The Best Worst Gift".
The hosts and the games highly entertaining.
Also, 4-time TOJammer Andy Wong casually covered TOJam
producing the best synopsis of our event that I've ever seen.
Finally got around to updating the TOJam 11 game page
highlighting games that I've heard about.
Should I have heard about more? Let me know.
