More Than Games, which takes place in The Corinthian Club in Glasgow on November 3rd, is Scottish Games Week’s event exploring the incredible transformational power of videogames – from film and screen to education, healthcare and beyond.
Other events in the Scottish Games Week programme will include the Education Symposium, aimed at educators and academics (V&A Dundee, November 1st) and a GAME ON! Session at the Scottish Parliament (Edinburgh, October 31st).
Brian Baglow, Director of Scottish Games Week, said:
Scottish Games Week 2023 is an event created for the whole games community: from those at the start of their careers, to designers & developers all the way through to the industry’s business leaders, as well as the educators, politicians and public sector organisations from across the whole ecosystem.
Games are the biggest part of our creative world, worth a staggering £182.9 billion* in 2022 with 3.1 billion people* around the world now playing. However, beyond that enormous bottom line, the creativity and craft of designing and creating games offer new challenges, while their role as a transformative technology has yet to be fully explored.
Following the successful inaugural events in 2022, we want to welcome everyone involved in the games ecosystem to Scottish Games Week 2023 to participate and make this year’s programme the biggest and best games event ever held in Scotland.
