Drop In And Play… The Latest Indie Games

NEoN drop in and playThis Saturday, delighted members of the public will be able to Drop In And Play some of the latest new titles from Scottish games studios at Dundee’s DCA, as part of the 2014 NEoN festival.

This will be the third year that the DCA has played host to Drop In And Play.  This year’s event has been organised by Quartic Llama, in conjunction with the DCA and NEoN.  Companies and developers showing their wares this year will include…

Critically acclaimed Fife-based games designer Michael Brough will also be showing his unreleased and highly anticipated games Smesport and Helix, while Glasgow-based developer Niall Moody will be showcasing his abstract work in Dundee for the first time.

Drop in and Play is a great opportunity to meet the public and show them off our latest projects. It’s the ultimate test to see if a game is fun when people get the chance to play and give you feedback! Likewise we get to talk about our games and share our creative process and explain how the magic happens.

Clare Brennan, organiser of the 2013 NEoN Festival Organiser, agrees:

NEoN is so pleased to be teaming up with DCA again this year to deliver Drop in and Play, and with Quartic Llama on board it’s sure to be the best one yet! This event has become a real highlight of our annual festival programme allowing NEoN to work in partnership to support and nurture new artists and designers working in the digital field.

Clive Gillman, Director of DCA, said:

This has been a really exciting event for us over the last couple of years and this year promises to bring together some even bigger names in the world of indie-gaming to show their work. There’s a real buzz and energy around this event that reflects the great games design work that is going on in the city and this year will definitely also have a few fun surprises in the games on show.

Drop_in_and_Play_web5Drop In And Play takes place on Saturday 9th of November (that’s THIS SATURDAY) from 4pm-8pm.  It’s free to attend and no booking is required.

If you’re anywhere near Dundee, we’d recommend you spare a couple of hours to Drop In And Play some fabulous games…
