Gam3rCon 2013 Recap
WEDNESDAY, JULY 17: PREVIEW NIGHT
What a night! Preview night was yesterday and we are amped for Opening Night! As with any event of this size it took the day to really find our stride as a team, but thanks to our amazing volunteers, we were able to pull everything together right as the doors were about to open. Right off the bat there were dozens of people lining up to get a chance to peak into Gam3rCON and get a taste of what the week has to come. We saw clown zombies, princesses, military men, other cosplayers all woven into the group of gamers that blanketed the sidewalk peering through the cracks of the front door. Read more...
THURSDAY, JULY 18: OPENING NIGHT
Thank you to everyone who came out for Opening Night last night! It was great having you. We loved seeing so many families, friends and groups come out to enjoy the live filking music, League of Legends Tournaments and endless gaming entertainment!
FRIDAY, JULY 19: DAY 2
We are off and playing. Teams in the League of Legends Tournament (hosted by Tower Dive TV) is in semi-finals, the table top lounge is packed and Comedy Night is rocking the rooftop. Attendees enjoyed another rip roaring performance of "War Games" and tournament winners took home prizes. It was nonstop gaming fun today at Gam3rCon.
SATURDAY, JULY 20: DAY 3: INDEPENDENT GAME DEVELOPER DAY!
Day 2 of Gam3rCon is upon us and we are so stoked! Today we celebrate independent game developers. At 2:00pm, we recognize all of the developers out there who have put their imagination to work and created games that we love to play or will have the chance to play at Gam3rCon. Have you ever wanted to start your own game?
