LES ANNONCES / ANNOUNCEMENTS

The ninth iteration of the Toronto Game Jam has been officially announced! April 25-27th, open to everyone, and rad as heck — if you can make it out, it’s one of the most enjoyable jams of the year.

Still in Toronto, the annual Bit Bazaar arts/crafts/games festival is Saturday May 11th, and MRGS has a booth reserved. Join the forum discussion if you’d like to be a part of our inter-city ambassadorship!

On cherche à organiser d’autres «meetups» hors d’un bar et plus axées sur des présentations à longue-forme; venez en discuter dans la page d’Organisation sur le forum!
=====
We’re looking to hold complementary meetups outside of the bar and more focused on longer-form presentations; check out the Organisation category on the forums if you’d like to take part in the planning.

Look at the DATGAM games! Look at them!

MEETUP — APR.2.AVR

March is drawing to a close, and that means precisely one thing: DATGAM games! Make some time this weekend to take part in our tri-monthly DATGAM JAM, and play all the (mostly) finished games next week at our April meetup.


The MRGS monthly meetups bring together game enthusiasts from Montreal and beyond to chat about games, play some demos, share a few drinks, and generally keep each other inspired. Game-making experience is NOT required — newcomers are welcome, and encouraged to come say hello!

Get in touch if you’ve got something to show, or if it’s your first time stopping by!

Le mois de mars s’achève, et ça ne signifie qu’une chose: les jeux de DATGAM! Faites partie du DATGAM JAM trimestriel, et rendez-vous au meetup mensuel de la semaine prochaine pour jouer aux jeux (plus ou moins) complets!


Les enthousiastes de jeux vidéo de Montréal, et ses alentours, se rassemblent chaque mois aux rencontres de la Société Ludique du Mont-Royal. Pour se garder motivés et inspirés les uns les autres on y discute de jeux vidéos et de l’industrie, on y présente des démos et on y boit quelques bières tout en ayant une agréable soirée. Nul besoin d’être un développeur pour y assister, les petits nouveaux sont toujours les bienvenus!

N’hésite pas à nous contacter si tu as un démo à présenter ou s’il s’agit de ta première visite!

Join the discussions over at our new forums: follow the Organisation tag to watch and contribute to the org’s development, or just pop by and say hello.


DTGMA / DATGAM

Our trimesterly jubilee, the Downtown Trimester Game-Making Adventure (DTGMA), has been rechristened — say hello to DATGAM*!

Everyone’s invited to make a game based on one or more themes, and present the final product at next month’s meetup. Come out to the game jam on March 29-30 to motivate yourselves and others to put the finishing touches on the games. The March themes:
»» It burns!
»» Dinosaurs!
»» Canon!
Optional Bonus: Work with a first-time game-maker!

Join us and post your progress on the forum!

[* The acronym refers to such words as Downtown, Game, and twice the Adventure, in whatever order you see fit.]
