Over the last few years, the video game industry has expanded tremendously in Montreal due to the emerging studios and our city is now recognized as a leader of this industry. Our mission as the Montreal Game Jam is to gather students, amateurs and professionals to stimulate the creation of innovative ideas. We want to nurture the collaboration in the Montreal community. It is by relying on the development of the Montreal community that we can increase the overall expertise and the need of belonging of the industry. Considering the strong media presence, our partners/sponsors through their presence, will be able to demonstrate their interest to promote the Montreal video game culture. Now is the time to discover new talents, to cultivate new ideas and to form new partnerships. Whether the participants are from the universities, the Indie scene or the industry, they will bond together during the course of the Jam. Innovative games and interesting gameplay mechanics are developed over the course of the weekend and it is up to you to promote this! The ultimate goal of the Game Jam is simple. We want you to have a lot of fun and do what you love most: create games!
