Did you know...

UTM has a game! Last October, the class of 2020 were the first to play Guardians of UTM, our university's first mobile game! This year, it's your turn!

Somebody is leaking UTM's secrets, and the Guardians need your help! Investigate people (and... animals?) from across campus to gather clues that will lead you to the culprit. Join the Guardians cast to:

  • Create your own avatar and explore the virtual UTM campus
  • Solve puzzles and inch closer to unraveling the mystery
  • Learn about the campus and its resources
  • Interact with familiar characters like the UTM Eagle and the Blind Duck
  • Become immersed in a witty, charming quest to save UTM!

How can I join?
Guardians of UTM was released to new-to-UTM students at O-Week in late August. The game is playable on iOS and Android devices, available at the link below. Prospective players will need their UTORid to download the game.

What's this about an in-person event?
Through a 3-hour Amazing-Race-style set of activities, discover who the mole really is at the Guardians Rescue Mission. Join your in-game team mascot to hunt the down the leak and reveal the true ending of the game!

This event will take place on September 29, 2017 from 5:00-8:00pm. Registration for the event will open closer to the date.

During the event, attendees will meet at the comptetition starting point and break out into teams of 4, donning a wristband matching their Maester's colours (provided). You need not come as a group of 4 - we'll connect you with additional members to complete your team! Each team will then be directed to a different challenge along the Rescue circuit. The challenges will test your UTM knowledge, so the further you progress in Guardians of UTM, the better you'll fare in the comptetition! Once all challenges have been completed, competitors will return to the competition starting point and guess the identity of the mole. The first teams to guess correctly will win cool prizes!

More info coming soon!
