Board Game Jam 2016!

Board Game Jam Logo

Board Game Jam 2016 is happening April 2 & 3!

At Board Game Jam you can:

  • Learn about how to design an awesome game, from some pros.
  • Try out some crazy game idea you’ve been been exploring.
  • Meet other people who love games.
  • And most importantly, make a game!

If you’re new to games or if you’ve already made a million then this jam is for you! We invite people of all skill levels to join in on the fun.

Changes in 2016!
Most importantly, we’re now at Ryerson University. New location, same great taste. We’ll have more details soon on the exact spot.

And that is, actually, the only change for now.

Who’s on the what now?!
Board Game Jam is a 2-day event starting on Saturday morning, and concluding on Sunday evening. On Saturday and Sunday, you make your game; on Sunday evening, we’ll have a big ol’ board game party (boozey venue TBA) and play the games everybody has made! Plus prizes.

Don’t know how to make a board game? Good! Board Game Jam is for the adventurous, not for the already-knowing-everything-ous.

Like last year, you can sign up as an individual, or get some friends and show up as a team – it’s entirely up to you!

You can follow Board Game Jam on Twitter and on the Facebook page!

Come Play Stardoz at Maker Festival Toronto

Stardoz with Oculus Rift

Maker Festival Toronto is happening this weekend (August 1&2) and it’s FREE!

I’ll be showing Stardoz complete with Oculus Rift support. I’ve modified the game quite a bit since the last time I showed it and it’s even more fun! Come on down and play Stardoz and all the other really cool projects that all the crazy makers have created.

If you’re curious here’s a partial list of what I changed:
-Enemy spawn rate
-Timer display
-Weapon performance
-AI vastly improved
-More SFX
-Easier to navigate menu (no head rotation needed)
