GameCity 2012


GameCity, the world’s best loved videogame festival, will unveil the first details of its annual GameCity festival, due to take place in October, 2012, at a launch party on May 2nd, from 5pm, at Antenna, Nottingham, NG1 1EQ, headlined by Ian Livingstone, OBE.

Founder and Life President at Eidos Interactive, OBE and Westminster videogame evangelist, to name a few accomplishments, Ian Livingstone will be honoured at a special, one-off GameCity event on May 2nd, from 5pm, at Antenna, Nottingham, NG1 1EQ.

Not only will Livingstone’s myriad accomplishments be reflected upon and celebrated in GameCity’s own inimitable style, the man, the myth, the legend will also unveil the first details of GameCity’s annual festival, due to take place this October.

Covering the festival dates, locations, a select number of headliners and other currently top-secret details, as well as opportunities for public participation and publisher/developer exhibition opportunities, this is also a chance for the public to have their say about October’s celebrations.

Having followed the development of GameCity from its humble beginnings, I'm delighted to be able to launch the 2012 GameCity festival. NTU are unique in translating the videogame industry to the broader public in radical new ways and have developed a true beacon of public engagement.
- Ian Livingstone OBE, Eidos Life President
We’re honoured and delighted to be able to welcome Ian to GameCity for the first time. Festival launch day is always an exciting event for us, but having it in the presence of one of the legends of UK development will make 2012 particularly special. I can scarcely believe that thirty years ago I was a schoolboy enthralled by ‘Deathtrap Dungeon’ and now here I am welcoming its creator to our event. He looks so very young.
- Iain Simons, GameCity Director and founder

The GameCityLaunch event will take place on May 2nd in Antenna, Nottingham, NG1 1EQ, from 5pm. Entry is limited and advanced booking is recommended. For details, go to www.gamecity.org
