Your opportunity to contribute to GameCity 5.
GameCity 5, 26th – 30th October, is rapidly approaching. As the world’s best loved independent video game festival, GameCity turns the entire city of Nottingham into a seething mass of video game goodness, with events of all sorts taking place. This year promises to be the biggest and best yet, with the introduction of OpenGameCity.
The concept is simple. GameCity are offering you the platform to do your thing. If you think you have something to contribute to the festival, simply fill out the submission form. This can be anything from hosting an industry talk to hosting a party, performing a song to performing with a talented animal,Â showing a short movie to showing off your cake making skills. Or it could be just about anything else. The choice is yours.
“We’re really excited to be able to release version 0.6b of the Draft festival spec and can’t wait to get people’s responses to it. This is a real change to how we develop and think about the festival, and we’re looking forward to discovering how it will be changed and extended by the people that care about it”, said festival Director Iain Simons.
As well as providing a platform for content creators, OpenGameCity also invites the active participation of venues and other locations around the city – extending the footprint of the festival and developing the leisure economy of Nottingham City Centre.
Iain goes on some more, “The ‘city’ part of our title has always been as important as the ‘game’ to us. We’re hugely excited to be able to explore ways in which videogame culture can really participate in the life of a city, the Takahashi playground project being our first effort towards that.”
