Local Gaming Festival ‘Playtopia MGA’ is happening this December

Playtopia MGA is South Africa’s very own game and interactive arts festival. The country’s game makers (and their unique creations) have landed upon the international map, and Playtopia MGA stands to celebrate the country’s diverse game development and immersive arts community, to inspire the next generation of creators, gamers, and enthusiasts. 

Taking place from the 5th till the 7th of December 2019, the 3-day event aims to expose attendees to international indie games, interactive and digital art and more. Over and above that, gamers, developers and event-goers will have a plethora of music and good food to enjoy.

There will be two conferencing streams available to delegates this year, the MGA Business to Business conference and the Playtopia Talks aimed at delegates interested in the creative side of game development.
