So the exciting news we were going to tell you last week but couldn’t until now is that Dandy has been chosen by GameCity to be its creative agency for this year’s event.
GameCity is an annual international independent videogames festival held in Nottingham and attracts world-wide attention. Since the inaugural event in 2006, the event has quickly built a fantastic reputation among gamers and within the industry for its innovative and exciting approach.
More than just about bashing buttons, GameCity is a real celebration and attracts the great and the good from across the gaming world (Tetris creator Alexey Pajitnov dropped by last year). There will be plenty of cultural talks and debates as well as quirky activities for all ages across the city.
Dandy’s delighted to be involved in helping take the festival to the next level (sorry). We’ve already got some great and innovative ideas on how to bring the event to life, while capturing the excitement and enthusiasm of this most inventive – and underrated – cultural pursuits. One of the big challenges for us will be to encourage more non-gamers to come along and feel part of the festivities.
GameCity will run from 30 October to 1 November. To become a gamecitizen and keep up with the latest festival news, go to gamecity.org. You can also join the Facebook group if that’s your thing.
