The 5-6th of June we open the doors to Wisby Strand again, with more than 36 student games for you to play and with speakers from Chicago, Pittsburgh, Berlin, Malmö and Warsaw for you to listen to. This year we are discussing empathy and emotion in video games.
Like always, we have a pay-what-you-want Visitors Pass so you can register and come in for free. Bring your friends and family, and help us vote for the best games!
Please note: everyone has to register online, and pick up a badge at the conference reception!
Join the Facebook event to be kept in the loop. And why not see the games being made, on Instagram? You can see all previous winners on our blog, including the three games that were recently on display in San Francisco.
We look forward to seeing you!
