The PTBO Game Jam is an annual not-for-profit event managed by industry professionals hosted in beautiful Peterborough Ontario, Canada. It is a gathering of people from all walks of life; from seasoned game developers and students just entering the industry, to hobbyists and enthusiasts all eager to engage and see what they can produce in a short timeframe.
Originally created in July 2016 by Matthew Davey with the support of dotBunny. The intent was to foster and support the local video game development industry, as well as develop a community that would eventually be able to take over in organizing the event. It only took a matter of weeks before other awesome 'like-minded' individuals were volunteering their support for this noble cause.
Getting Shit Done™ is the team's ethos — demonstrating what a collection of skilled professionals can accomplish when united under a common banner.
