Venue: BAFTA, 195 Piccadilly, London W1J 9LN
Come and meet the brightest stars of UK indie games development, find out about creating games on mobile and consoles, plus play on the PS Vita ahead of its retail release!
To celebrate the rise of indie gaming, the Guardian has teamed up with BAFTA to host a special event dedicated to sampling new projects from independent developers across the UK. Studios including Mode 7, responsible for the award-winning Frozen Synapse, and HoneySlug, developing PS Vita launch title Frobisher Says [pictured above], will be on hand to demo their games, and discuss the challenges and opportunities of developing in the indie sector. Sony will also be showing off the PS Vita and offering attendees a hands-on look at the console ahead of its UK launch.
This is an amazing chance for fans of independent games to meet with stars of the UK scene and play lots of astonishing titles. It'll also be a chance for burgeoning iOS, Android and console developers to get some advice on creating and distributing games.
BAFTA's public events and online resources bring you closer to the creative talent behind your favourite games, films, and TV shows. Find out more at www.bafta.org/newsletter, www.facebook.com/bafta or twitter.com/baftagames
