NYC Gaming Playtest Night

NOTE:  Attendees MUST purchase tickets on Eventbrite here:

Two months ago, over 30 independent developers showed off their creations to almost 200 attendees.  It was a huge success, and everyone asked for more.

On January 14th we're doing it again.  Developers will have a chance to show off their newest games one-on-one to the NYC Games Forum crowd. We're taking over Microsoft to offer more developers the opportunity to get in front of players, pitch their games and get feedback.  Each game will have its own section of a booth and players will get to try out whatever strikes their fancy.

Have a game and want to show it off to playtesters? Fill out the form here. You'll need to be available to show your game from 6:00 to 8:30pm on January 14th.

Don't have a game, but want to show up to try out the games and have fun? RSVP as an attendee -- it'll be an awesome night. An RSVP gets you into the Playtest event as well as the afterparty.

Please include your first and last name when you RSVP.  Your name must be on the list to get past building security.  Also, all guests must RSVP on their own.

    Another great night of playtesting games by local developers. This time around there were a lot of multiplayer games, especially arena combat ones.

    This website covered it pretty extensively:

    Although they should have given Carbon Cutters it's own feature, sigh.

    Does anyone know if we have to purchase a ticket or pass to get in? I went on the link for the ticket but that page brought me to the October event. Any assist would be of great help, thank you.
