This jam is now over. It ran from 2015-05-09 04:00:00 to 2015-05-10 04:00:00.

Register for the physical jam on Eventbrite here!

The Mother's Day Jam is dedicated to all the mothers, grandmothers, role models, Mother Brains, and women in our lives. Make a game with us!

You can make an interactive card or story with Twine! A game on being a mother and grandmotherhood. Invite your mom along and create a game together! If you're a mom, bring your kids and make a board game together.

Optional bonus theme: SECRET -- to be announced at the start of the jam!

First-time game makers are encouraged to come! Everyone of all genders, ages, languages, and orientations are welcome to jam with us in a safe-space environment. Feel free to come on one, for part of a day, or both days. No pressure!

This is a casual, friendly jam organized by Pixelles, a non-profit in Montreal dedicated to helping women make more games.


Hosted by:

GamePlay Space / Espace Ludique
A co-working space for video game development.
(1435 St Alexander St, metro Place des Arts)

But you're welcome to create games from home and submit them here, if that's your preference. Or just send them to your mom-type as a gift, and don't involve us at all. Sometimes gifts should be private!

Organizers: Charlotte Fisher, Jana Sloan van Geest
