Event WINTER PLAY: Boston Game Expo!


Playcrafting Boston is back!!

Video games are taking over the Microsoft NERD Center in Cambridge for an all-out Expo celebrating local developers! Join us for a night of games, pizza and fun. All ages are welcome. We hope you can join us for our biggest seasonal gathering!

Over 100 game developers will be showing off their latest games one-on-one to a crowd. 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.
