Gamercamp Toronto - November 21st

By Andrew Shin

Gamercamp is a one day event in Toronto that is a celebration of video games. This year's event will take place on November 21st at the Lower Ossington Theatre. There will be speakers, demos, an arcade area dressed with rare and retro games and Toronto's own indie game cabinet called the Torontron.

The keynote speakers for this year are Hand Eye Society's Mare Sheppard and Raigan Burns and their topic will be about approaching video game development with the rock band model. Other speakers will include Michael Todd talking about Broken Brothers Deluxe and Gerald Darcy of the Replay Arcade Museum - a Toronto based gaming museum set to open soon. In fact, Replay will be Canada's first gaming museum.

In the evening there will be a closing party hosted by Gamercamp and Replay called 1UP that will showcase 25 rare and classic arcade cabinets with unlimited freeplay. On top of all that, dinner will also be served to attendees.

Tickets for Gamercamp can be purchased for $15 and includes admission, dinner and access to the 1UP closing party. To purchase tickets, click here.
