Second Game Wave Festival to happen in November

Update on November 17, 2022:

The Game Wave Festival has reached out to let us know that the festival’s dates have changed, and the event has scaled down. It will now take place across only two days, November 28 and November 29, 2022.

In addition to new dates, Game Wave Festival will now also host the Nordic Game Discovery Contest (NGDC) Baltic Semi-finals.

Original Story:

The Game Wave Festival has announced that it will return in September, at the Tallink Spa & Conference Hotel in Tallinn, Estonia.

The event, which is set to take place between September 27, 2022 and October 2, 2022, is described as “a business, education and entertainment event for gaming industry professionals”. Its first three days will be dedicated to a game jam, where developers from around the world can collaborate on micro-projects. 

When asked about the event,  Ints Viksna, Chairman of Board at the Latvian Technological Center said “Game Wave Festival is an expressive way to celebrate glorious game development heritage, culture and traditions, meet new and old faces, and have fun. It is professional, oriented to have serious business talks, and cozy, to make friends with almost all attendees. I am happy to welcome all of you to the 2nd Game Wave Festival!” 

Alongside conferences and workshops, visitors will be able to pitch to publishers and attend parties. The parties listed on the schedule include a pool party, so it’d be wise to pack a swimsuit.
