Ottawa, December 21, 2021 — Ottawa Games, a community-run initiative that promotes local talent in games and events, launches website to showcase local works.
Ottawa Games aims to showcase the Ottawa game development community, the developers themselves, and their work. Ottawa Games promotes industry events happening in and around Ottawa and acts as a database resource for anyone looking to start their career in game development. It is run by four volunteers, Paige Marincak, Mathieu O’Brien, Scott Miley, and Taraneh Dohmer. The website features a calendar that shows upcoming game-related events such as Dirty Rectangles, Game Jams, and other events. You can also find an index featuring local game devs, studios, and their games.
“When people think of games in Canada, they think Toronto, Vancouver, and Montreal. We wanted to showcase the amazing talent that is coming out of the capital as well.” — Mathieu O’Brien
“Ottawa is a city brimming with talent and a love for games. There are so many people here who are working on interesting and cool projects - from the artistic to the grand to the unusual. We wanted to create a space to help bring their work to larger audiences, to showcase all the amazing events occurring in the community, and to provide resources for those who wish to get involved.” - Paige Marincak
