About Us

What do you get when you put groups of 4 students into a room for 48 hours and tell them to develop a mobile game? Apart from the most creative game concepts, you’ll get the most epic competition north of the border!

The Great Canadian Appathon (GCA) is a 48-hour national competition open to Canadian college and university students from coast-to-coast. Aspiring game developers and designers race against the clock to design the next hit mobile game and take home more than $35,000 in cash and prizes.

Date: The GCA4 starts Friday January 17th, 5pm (local time) and ends Sunday January 19th, 5pm (local time).
