Game Demo Night

Silicon Valley Independent Game Developers Association (SV IGDA) is bringing back last year’s highly successful GAME DEMO NIGHT!

Cogswell Polytechnical College will once again play host.

Standing room only was the order of the evening as more than 150 enthusiastic gamers packed into Cogswell’s Dragons Den to listen to developers talk about their projects. After the presentations the developers moved to tables around the room where attendees had the chance to ask questions and interact one-on-one with the developers.

This year’s event will be held on Wednesday, September 30. Visit Cogswell’s website to learn more.
