The second season of the popular after dark celebration of video game culture, GameCityNights, will be kicking off in style with Episode 1 on January 28th.
GameCityNights take place at Antenna in Nottingham, Beck Street, NG1 1EQ, beginning at 6pm. Entry is strictly 18+ only, tickets Â£5 in advance, Â£6 on the door.
Between 6 and 8pm, skills-based networking sessions will help attendees to earn a fist full of business cards, create industry contacts and, possibly, find gainful employment. Each session will be lead by a guest speaker of the month who will deliver a presentation to compliment the early evening discussions.
From 8 till late, videogame culture takes centre stage. For Episode1 GameCity have booked the biggest Nights line-up yet; videogames developer and comedian Graham Goring will push the boundaries of taste, Theremin Hero Greig Stewart is set to deliver a dazzling display of unique hands-free gaming and laser harp wizardry, pay tribute to one of history’s greatest sci-fi television shows, Time-Freeze, with Nottingham’s own sitcom spoofing artists The Megaphones and listen to One Life Leftâ€™s Derek Williams present a live Free Market Economy segment.
GameCity Director Iain Simons said, â€œItâ€™s a brand new year and weâ€™re throwing a lot of effort into making the brand new season of GameCityNights something to remember. Weâ€™ve got an amazing line-up on the stocks this time and a lot of surprises in store. Make sure youâ€™ve reserved the last Friday of the month – theyâ€™re going to be special.â€
Fan favourites from Season 1 make a welcome return this year, with a super secret â€˜From the Desk ofâ€™ in which a well-known developer is grilled, live games, competitions, prizes and the very best indie developers showing their wares next to some of the monthâ€™s biggest AAA titles, all available to play, fuelled by the late-night bar and restaurant.
