Gamercamp, the little games-festival-that-could, returns for its fourth annual outing in the city. The brainchild of co-founders Mark Rabo and Jaime Woo, Gamercamp is a celebration of everything related to games and the people who make (and play) them. With keynote speakers representing games ranging from AAA to indie, Gamercamp Lvl 4 aims to be the most ambitious iteration to date.
Toronto-based games festival lands Splinter Cell, Super T.I.M.E. Force and No Quarter.
Jaime Woo is best known to Toronto gamers as one of the co-founders of Gamercamp, but he’s recently expanded his organizational portfolio with forallgamerssake, an art exhibit that seeks to explore the roles of gender and queerness in video games. We spoke with Jaime prior to the exhibit’s debut at the CSI Annex in Toronto, and what follows is a frequently hilarious and consistently uncompromising conversation about equality and representation in games, with detours for everything from Mass Effect 3 to condom warfare.
Gamercamp LV2 is a wrap! The two day conference/social/experience featured talks by local game designers, journalists and luminaries, demos of new and exciting projects being developed in the city, music, food and -bit nostalgia. This is a detailed run down of this extremely fun and enlightening weekend.
