The 2019 edition of the London Games Festival will be bigger than ever and run from April 2nd to April 14th across the nation’s capital.
LGF 2018 brought in some 65,000 people, attending 40 different events across 20 venues, and featured around 400 games in total being shown off. This level of success has prompted organisers to push for bigger, longer, and more in 2019.
The festival, run by Games London (an initiative from Film London) and Ukie, has so far attracted in the region of £40 million in potential investments to games businesses both in London and across the UK as a whole.
London Games Festival 2019 will see plenty of events returning, such as the LGF Hub and Now Play This, which show off prototypes and start-ups, or allow visitors to play experimental styles of games respectively. There’s also the returning tie-in with both EGX Rezzed, the indie games showcase, and the BAFTA Games Awards.
Applications for LGF 2019 are open now, and details can be found on the official site.
