Junicorn gamemaker and DMG volunteer Izzie Colpitts-Campbell is curating games for Long Winter, November 8 at the Great Hall (1087 Queen St. W.). Games include Cuddlegeddon by Gillian Blekkenhorst (Jeuxly), Hugpunx by Merritt Kopas, Hibiki’s Dokidoki Room Cleaning Day!! (Erica Gregory, Maggie McLean, and Christine Brual).
No Jam 2, presented in partnership with OCAD U’s game:play lab, is an experimental game jam pairing video and film artists with illustrators and animators to make a multi-screen full-motion-video game. Participants will use tools developed for the cyborg feminist art game psXXYborg (created by members Hannah Epstein, Alex Leitch, and Sagan Yee).
Saturday, Nov. 9: workshops on narrative design (Merritt Kopas), history and future of FMV (Hannah Epstein), game design basics (Cecily Carver), and software tutorial (Alex Leitch).
One week of design and prep time, and a two-day jam, Nov. 16-17.
Applications are open until October 28. Apply now!
DMG will have a shared table at the second-ever Bit Bazaar. All DMG members are invited to include their game and any promotional items (postcards, stickers) or items for sale (zines, toys, comics, tapes). Just drop us a line!
You can also apply for a table on your own if you need more space to display your game and sell stuff to a gift-buying crowd!
