Gamercamp: November 21st in Toronto

Attention all Toronto gamers, Gamercamp happens on November 21st.  A one-day celebration of the creativity, art, and history of video games featuring speakers, demos, and an arcade filled with rare and retro games from Canada’s first gaming museum. If you like indie games, retro games or have an interest in game design Gamercamp is the place to be.

Keynotes will be delivered by local indie developers Raigan Burns and Mare Sheppard of Metanet Software (N and N+)  discussing their approach to video game development. Michael Todd of Spyart (Broken Brothers Deluxe) will be discussing his latest project and explain his recent game-a-week experiment.

Between sessions Gamercamp will be showcasing work from the Toronto indie dev community: game demos, works-in-progress and pixel art. The organizers have teamed up with the Replay Classic Arcade Museum (Canada’s first and only retro gaming museum) for a one-of-a-kind closing party, 1UP, which will feature 25 rare and classic arcade cabinets for an on-site arcade with unlimited freeplay all night. There will even be dinner provided to power up for all that gaming madness.
