Gamefest 2018 a Success!

Thanks to everyone who came out and participated in Gamefest 2018! Over 40 games were demoed this weekend from six participating schools which were viewed by the public and assessed by our panel of professional industry judges. Congratulations to everyone who won!


Our day began in downtown Troy NY’s atrium where participants showcased their work and local developers judged the competing games. Industry professionals, students, indie developers and local visitors were all able to enjoy the game demos and listen to the lunchtime microtalks.


During the evening event begining with short presentations from our sponsors Chelsea Has presented her keynote “It is a group exercise” where she discussed how she got started in the game industry and delved into the development process that built the award winning “What Remains of Edith Finch.”
