Edinburgh Games Symposium – ProtoPlay Edition

082 - EGSPoster-SGN_FB-WebHeads up, folks. The 2015 http://www.edingame.com/ takes place on Wednesday and Thursday next week. The symposium’s rather awesome (and unique) mix of panels, speakers, music, performance, concerts, discussion and debate are back, but this year there’s a twist…

It’s in Dundee.

Yes, Scotland’s throbbing games hub is playing host to the country’s most exciting and eclectic games event. So now there’s no excuse not to get those busy little arses off your office chairs and head along.

The move to Dundee, while a nightmare in corporate branding terms, makes a huge amount of sense. It allows the Symposium to take advantage of the huge audience coming along to Dare ProtoPlay (which also happens next week, fact fans, will YOU be there?)

The format for this year’s event offers a clear split between activities. Game development and audio panels and presentations will be held on Wednesday 12th of August. Workshops and music performances take place on Thursday 13th in the Marryat Hall, within Caird Hall.

This year, speakers and performers will include: Daniel Lisi, Joanna Orland, Tony Gowland, Chipzel, Timea Tabori, Dehumaniser, Team Junkfish, and many more. Rumour has it Baglow will be chairing something, so there’s a mark of quality right there…
