Checkpoint 2: Return of the Game Developers

Last year we held our first Checkpoint, an event featuring guest speakers from the local game industry, and it was a HUGE success!

Now, Checkpoint is back for its second year! This year, we have Ryan Henson Creighton, head of Untold Entertainment, Jim McGinley, one of the founders of TOJam, and Cecily Carver, co-director of Dames Making Games Toronto. We’ll also sell raffle tickets for $5 with prizes that include a Nintendo 3DS XL, courtesy of Nintendo of Canada.

Checkpoint will be next Wednesday, March 26 from 6pm – 9pm at the Rogers Communication Centre (80 Gould St.) and will take place in RCC 230 (The Transmedia Zone). For more info, please check out the Facebook Event Page.

Everyone is welcome and the event is free. Hope to see you there!
