Event info


Amid the rise of summer, this is the day that games come first. On June 10th, game developers from all over the world will gather in Helsinki, Finland for a day dedicated to play. No media, no livestream — just us. The full program of speakers, panels, and a pitching competition will be released soon. The event will take place at the Cable Factory in downtown Helsinki.

Game Pitching Session

Pitch your game and show it off to the crowd! You could have 3 minutes on the main stage to show everyone the game you loved to make. It’s not a competition, though the valuable feedback you’re sure to get will definitely be prize enough.
