Jam Site Description: 

Hello Jammers! 

With GBC Toronto Global Game Jam 2018 just two weeks away, we at the IGDA GBC wanted to reach out to all of our participants with important information regarding the event and addressing questions many of you have.  


To summarize, please be sure to fill out the following:  eventbrite,  Global Game Jam website, and Team Registration Form


First of all, I want you to know how grateful we are for you choosing our site January 26-28th. Last year our location ranked as the largest Global Game Jam site in Ontario, and third largest in the Country! With no entrance fees and tons of amenities on-site and nearby, we were one of the best places to jam in all of Canada.

This year we are already on track to exceed last years attendance, and it couldn't be possible without you and your teams joining and spreading the word. So thank you. Speaking of teams...


In the last few weeks, we have received many emails with questions about team and solo sign-ups, and we're here to help:

If you are part of a team, please have ONE person from your team fill out the Team Registration Form (link below)

If you are a solo-jammer, please fill this form out, using your own email for team information. 

If you require any equipment, space, or more team members, this is where you let us know! 


Important Dates/Times to Note:
