The best and brightest in the games business will be gathering next month at London’s Tobacco Dock for W.A.S.D, a new games show that’s set to showcase a huge range of new games and their creators, from promising indies to thrilling triple-As. The festival will feature exhibits and talks from the likes of Sega, Devolver Digital, Team17, and many more, and tickets to the event are still available.
W.A.S.D. is set for April 7-9, and it’s designed to be a chance for players and game creators to meet up in a relaxed atmosphere, where indie game developers, triple-A publishers, and fans are on equal footing, as Roucan founder David Lilley explains in our interview.
It’s also a great opportunity for anyone thinking about a career in games to get some great pointers from folks in the business. W.A.S.D will feature panel discussions and talks from game developers, marketing experts, and even some of our own journalists, all offering guidance on early career steps and how to break into the world of games as a career.
If you’re more interested in playing cool new games, the W.A.S.D. Curios collection is a part of the show you won’t want to miss. Thirteen developers will have special projects available for showgoers to try out for themselves, and you can read more about those in our rundown.
