Game on!

We’re back!

Book Saturday, March 12, 2016, in your calendar for the return of Games Without Frontiers 2.0, a “pop-up idea arcade” about the social power of video games—and part of the University of Victoria’s IdeaFest week of talks, demos, panels and other brain-tingling activities. Doors open @ 11:30 am in the MacLaurin Building, with panels beginning @ noon and the action continuing until (at least) 5 pm.

Watch this page for more information about GWOF 2.0 and its spectacular line-up of demos, panels, performances, keynotes, and a Game Jam to promote awareness about refugees. Demos include local game designers, a MarioMaker demo, and a MinecraftEDU lab.
