ToJam 2009

Tojam 2009 concluded last Sunday. By far ToJam is the craziest most fast paced game development competition around. Teams and individuals try and put a game out from scratch in just 3 days.


Most teams work around the clock forgoing sleep to nurture their creations.


Team AnyKey pictured here this year went with a very ambitious project, and some members including myself are still spending a few hours a week tuning the final result for the arcade.


There were many days where we went from Extreme coders to musicians to artists in a way ToJam is less about what you know and more about raw talent. To anyone thinking of going to ToJam but fear they won't place, come anyway! Part of the joys of ToJam is being around great people doing what you love and learning in the process.



There were plenty of awesome games to be seen many of them way too good for you to feel like they could've been created in 3 days.


I can't credit these pictures above they were taken by David Vanvliet, another participant at the event.
