Game Jam 2012 commences! 

A 48-hour gathering of videogame experts at the Hub

The Halifax Game Jam is a gathering of game developers, artists, musicians, hackers, graphic designers, system admins, comic book artists and good old-fashioned creative people for a weekend-long game-development event.

Game Jammers will converge at The Hub (1673 Barrington Street) on the evening of Friday March 2 where they’ll stay for 48 hours. Jammers will break off into pairs, quartets, or even sometimes in teams of a dozen or more, to produce fully functional games by Sunday evening.

Last year, the Halifax Game Jam saw nearly 100 participants come through the doors of The Hub. By the end of the weekend, 50 dedicated peons produced and demoed nine fantastical games. The Hub was transformed into an impressive multi-disciplinary creative workshop.

This year promises to be even more interesting, with representation from an even wider range of creative professionals, students, and game enthusiasts from Halifax and beyond.

Participation is free, no registration required. Snacks ‘n soda will be provided. Bring your own gear---there will be plenty of wifi, ethernet, and comfy tables for all. For more info, visit

Survey Asks

Should council use the yet-to-be-finalized Centre Plan when debating new developments?

  • No, it doesn’t exist yet and is still likely to change
  • Yes, thousands of hours of work and consultation have gone into what’s already assembled
  • Maybe, it really depends on what’s being proposed by the developer
  • I don’t know what the Centre Plan is and do not wish to participate in this poll
