Event SUMMER PLAY: Bay Area Game Expo

Video games are taking over Google in San Francisco for an all-out Expo celebrating local developers! Join us for a summer evening of games, food, and fun.

Game developers will be showing off their latest games one-on-one to all attendees. For developers, this is a great opportunity to show off their games (finished or unfinished) and get direct feedback from players. For everyone else, it’s a unique opportunity to try out the biggest collection of games made in and around the Bay Area all in one place. More games being added daily.

For Attendees:

Thanks to our sponsor at Google and their product AdMob, this Expo will be FREE for all attendees! 

You must register on Eventbrite. Please include your first and last name when you RSVP. Your name must be on the list to get past building security. If you’re registering multiple tickets, make sure you enter a name for each ticket when prompted to, as all guests must RSVP on their own in order to get each name through security.

**Please be aware that all guests will be required to show a photo ID(s) matching the name(s) on their reservation. We aim to create an inclusive and supportive community and will gladly print you a badge with your preferred name.  Email sfo@playcrafting.com if you have any questions or concerns.**
