Event Demo & Play: NYC Games Showcase

Live game demos. Playtime. Pizza.

Playcrafting is the place to see and play the newest independent games being made in New York and meet the people who built them. Each month, we get together to watch developers explain the mechanics and origins of their games while doing live game demos. Attendees then play each game with the developers behind them. Join our community of game developers, designers, creatives, investors and more building across multiple platforms and genres. Enjoy complimentary pizza as you meet the developers and network with game professionals from throughout our local community. Plus our epic after party. Hope you can make it!


For Attendees:

You must register on Eventbrite. Please include the first name, last name and email of each person you are registering (including yourself) when you RSVP so we can add you to our guest list for the evening. All names must be on the list to get past building security.
