Event Halloween Game Expo!

Video games are taking over the Microsoft office in Times Square for an all-out Halloween Expo celebrating local developers! Join us for a day of games, pizza, treats and prizes. Costumes are encouraged. Families are welcome – bring your kids to trick-or-treat for candy from booth to booth as they try out each game! We hope you can join us for this very special edition of our seasonal Expo!

Over 100 game developers will be showing off their latest games one-on-one to a crowd of up to 1000 people. 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 NYC all in one place. More games being added daily.
