Organised and run by The Forum Trust, Norwich Gaming Festival celebrates the cultural, creative and educational aspects of the gaming industry. It’s for all ages, all levels of interest and expertise, and a great opportunity for local, national and international talent to showcase their expertise in game development and programming.
Last year over 40,000 visitors came to the festival and 2018 promises to be bigger and better than ever. The jam packed programme will include indie, mainstream and retro games, seminars, talks, workshops, demos and shows.
So far over 40 independent developers are set to showcase their games, giving visitors the chance to find out more about their creation and festival organisers are calling for developers and publishers who are keen to showcase their games to get involved.
Commenting Festival Project Manager Richard Smith said: “Norwich Gaming Festival is unique because of its emphasis showcasing the amazing creations of independent developers and highlighting the amazing career and educational opportunities available. If you have a game that you want to showcase there’s no better opportunity or platform for thousands of people to play your game!”
