Broken Pencil magazine organizes an event called Canzine focused on zines and indie literary culture. Now they’re looking into celebrating games too – and they may want yours!

Here’s the info:

Broken Pencil magazine and their DIY tech columnist skot deeming (aka mrghosty) are planning something special at this year’s Canzine. Toronto has a rich creative community of DIY game makers; whether their works be digital games, card games, board games etc. And we want to show them off at Canzine Toronto 2012.

We’re looking for is a number of people who have made DIY games to come down to the games room and demo them, allowing Canzine attendees to experience DIY game culture first hand.

If you’re a board game, card game, or a digital game maker, we want to bring you in, share your work and come play with us on October 21st!

The Hand Eye Society will be providing their Torontron Game Cabinets, and we’ll be supplying tables and chairs for everyone to gather around and play. If you’re a DIY digital game maker, bring down your laptop and show people what you’re up to. If you’re a board game maker and want some play testing of a prototype, this would be a great chance for that too!

If you want to come and bring your games along, please let me know as we’ll be compiling a list of makers and games for the web, etc prior to the event. All those demoing their games will get free admission to Canzine and a copy of the latest issue of Broken Pencil Magazine.
