More than 150 participants took place in PTBO Game Jam 02, held February 17th to 19th at Fleming College’s state of the art Kawartha Trades and Technology Centre. More than half of those in attendance were game developers, resulting in an impressive 33 games being created.
This semi-annual, not-for-profit showcase of all things game development saw programmers, designers, artists and others involved in game-development disciplines gather to plan, design and create games in a specified time frame.
PTBO Game Jam 02 also presented an event-opening Educational Block that featured Robert French, who led a seminar on the steps and processes involved in the creation of PAC-MAN.
“Watching the organic growth of this event has been astonishing,” says principal event organizer Matthew Davey of Peterborough game development studio dotBunny.
“Hearing the stories of individuals and their journeys to get here made all the work organizing it well worth it. I can't wait to see what we can do for PTBO Game Jam 03 as we are now starting to catch the eye of much larger markets.”
