A bit more about igfest.
igfest games are different. The games are all about unique connections between people and places. We play games in and with the real world. We play games in the city, on the streets and in unusual buildings and places. Some game are high tech and some have no tech at alll. Some games last for minutes and others hours. Some are rich and challenging and some are just senseless fun. We believe games can be as exciting and engaging as the cinema or theatre. igfest is a chance to play some of the best games from artists and game designers from across the world.
