For its second year, the indie darling Playtopia has joined forces with Makes Games Africa (MGA) to form Playtopia MGA – a bigger and better show for all indie gaming ventures.

Once again taking place in the oldest building in South Africa, The Castle of Good Hope, the event will showcase a “collision of past and future” that hopes to put the spotlight on South African indie game creators.

Taking place from 5 December – 7 December 2019, attendees will be able to enjoy a three-day marathon of music and experiential exhibitions by some of Africa’s top interactive artists. Better still, the festival will offer more than thirty in-depth looks at alternative indie games.

Attendees will also get to experience a “Super Friendship Arcade room with games played on custom controllers”, as well as VR rooms, access to a beer garden and food trucks; and even a promisingly long lineup of electronic music artists such as Thor RixonTommy Gun, Markus Wormstorm, Julia Roberts and Sassquatch, among many moreIt sounds like an event that should not be missed, which is why we are giving away two weekend passes!

In addition to general access, there will be two conferencing streams available to delegates this year. Namely the MGA Business To Business Conference and the Playtopia Talks aimed at delegates interested in the creative side of game development. Playtopia delegates are invited to attend talks, panels and workshops hosted by both international and local industry experts in the field of Indie Game development and the MGA talks are aimed at business development of gaming within the African context. Tickets are very limited and booking is essential!
