LameJam 2021: Learn, Game, Jam!

Hey there! Are you interested in making games, but don’t know where to start? Thought about entering a game jam but felt a bit too much pressure for your first time? Not sure what a game jam is, but you like games and jam? Have no fear! LameJam is here!

LameJam is an Ottawa-based three-day weekend online event taking place Friday, November 26th – Sunday, November 28th. We’ve designed LameJam to be a low-pressure environment to get beginners up and running to start making their own games! Start from nothing but a basic theme, a small team, and do your best to make a small video game (or tabletop game!) by Sunday afternoon. Mentors will be available to answer questions, and there will be a variety of talks on different game-making skills, industry anecdotes, and workshops on getting started with game engines.

Have questions? For more information on LameJam and game jams in general, checkout out our website at, join the Discord server to chat with us, and sign up for our mailing list for event updates!
