Running from October 20th-27th, GameCity 7 is currently being held in the neighbouring city of Nottingham. GameCity is an annual event showcasing a range of games and talent across the sector; with AAA titles such as Crysis 3 on display this year to a flurry of titles being produced by indie studios.
Two of our own students are showcasing their work this year at the Market Square. With Sam Albon and his company 2Person Games displaying their game Space Salvager all day this weekend (20th and 21st) followed by 7-11pm on the 23rd and 10am-1pm on the 26th.
Meanwhile fellow final year CGP student Andrew Roper, hot from showcasing his work at the EuroGamer Expo in London, is showing off his new title Lazarus which he is working on with SpiltMilk Studios. Andrew is showing his work every day except on Tuesday (23rd) and Thursday (25th) – to his knowledge! 😉
Meanwhile, Andrew is also working a play-and-party event for Lazarus, with some details from the man himself:
“We’re having a live lazarus play-and-party at Antenna on the friday night (26th). Competition, a rather funky cool prize, cake, alcohol, and people 😀 “
You can find out more about the Lazarus party here: http://gamecity2012.sched.org/event/816f274ccec16e8565c68001b1fdb55a?iframe=no#.UIZqx8Uxqqh

Best of luck to both of you guys. Hope it’s a big success.
Meanwhile, some of the CGP and CGMA guys will be popping over to check out what is happening at GameCity later this week. We’ll keep you posted with more updates!
