Next month, the Royal Ontario Museum will open its doors to aspiring Canadian game developers for the ROM Game Jam
, an event in partnership with Gamercamp
and the University of Toronto.
This three-day jam runs from August 9 through August 11 with a theme of "Foretelling the Past." Participants will have free access to all of the museum's exhibits, from which they can draw inspiration for their game, and may pick the brains of the ROM's many experts.
Games submitted during this jam will get a play-test session at the museum in October, followed by an official premiere at Gamercamp in November. Space is limited, so team sizes can only range between one and four individuals.
