Hi! Here you can send your application to be part of the showcase event during Game Happens! 2016, held in Genova (Italy) on June 24-25, 2016. Game Happens! is the international conference in Italy where game design and interaction design collide, an event for designers who are looking for inspirational people and experimental projects.
This year, the theme of the event will be: Game Happens! – Right Now. For us, the theme is a way to build coherence in the showcase area, it's not mandatory, but we invite you to interpret your work and try to understand how it can be related to the theme.
You can submit any kind of game (digital, VR, board, RPG, custom controller…), or any other kind of project (performances, lectures, workshops,…) that embodies the theme. Each participant or team can submit one or more projects.
Entries will be selected by the Game Happens! curation team. A limited number of submissions will be selected and receive complimentary passes to the conference. Participants will be notified via email in May whether or not they have been selected. Once selected, participants will have the opportunity to choose among different exhibition solutions (free or pay). Please be aware that we cannot provide transport or accommodations for developers, but we will be happy to offer you a selection of solutions at a discounted price, or putting you in contact with locals for couchsurfing opportunities.You can learn more about us and the 2014 and 2015 events on our website (http://gamehappens.com). Deadline: Sunday April 17th, 2016 (h. 23:59 CET)If you have any questions, please email us (firstname.lastname@example.org).
