Playcrafting NYC
For the past three years, Playcrafting has hosted its monthly Demo & Play Nights at Microsoft in New York. As the game development community has grown, so has the scope of Playcrafting’s services for developers and those looking to become developers. This Demo & Play Night will be the biggest one to date, featuring 400 attendees from inside and outside the game industry. The evening will feature live demo presentations of the games as well as time to try them out and mingle with the developers over complimentary pizza and beverages. And don’t miss our epic after party, featuring independent games made in the New York area!

Playcrafting began in 2009 as a Meetup group for developers to show off their games and meet other developers. For the first couple of years, monthly Demo & Play Nights were all that were provided. In the years since, it has grown to now provide about 20 big events, 80 classes, and 4 multi-week courses per year in New York alone. With a branch in Boston and another coming to San Francisco in 2016, join us in celebrating our biggest Demo & Play yet in celebration of New York’s growing community of talented game developers.

We hope to see you there! RSVP here.
