Press Information 1b: PLAY18 celebrates the future of gaming in November (August 15th, 2018)

Hamburg, August 15th, 2018. While hundreds of thousands of gamers will, in a few weeks, be able to try out the latest computer and video games at Gamescom, only a few months later PLAY18 takes a look at the future. From November 1st through November 4th, the international Creative Gaming Festival invites you to come to Hamburg.

PLAY18 asks its guests and visitors, what will the games of the future look like? How can games positively influence the world? Whether young or old, hardcore gamer or occasional player – games in numerous formats will be there above all to be played. The PLAY18 team will provide a preview of the festival at Gamescom in Cologne on August 23rd at 15:45 on the “campus stage” in Hall 10.2.

“To creatively enjoy, explore the boundaries of digital games, break rules, play together, celebrate together and be able, within a wonderful framework, to exchange ideas with one another – that is what the PLAY – Creative Gaming Festival has stood for these many years,” so Mareike Ottrand, co-founder of Studio Fizbin – the creators of the Inner World-Series.

This year gamers will be able to participate and play under the motto “Ready Game Change – Create a New Tomorrow!”. The variety of festival domains such as “Studio Zukunft”, numerous workshops or the completely playable PLAY exhibition invite the participant to explore creative and innovative computer and video games and at the same time to understand their developments, backgrounds and roles for society, culture and politics. Thereby, the attendee also encounters other enthusiastic gamers and can even participate in discussion roundtables and experience together with other exceptional computer games. For these reasons the PLAY Festival has, in the meantime, made a name for itself far beyond Germany’s borders.

“After we did a review of 10 years of PLAY last year, this year we take a look at the future,” so the comment of Christiane Schwinge, member of the artistic direction. “We can hardly wait for November so that with our visitors we can once again take hold of the gamepads.”

The detailed program for PLAY18 will be announced and updated over the coming weeks until the festival starts under PLAY18 invites all enthusiastic gamers to help shape the future of gaming from November 1st to 4th in Hamburg.
