Games in Action Conference: November 4-5, 2022

New: Use ACTION25 for 25% off the ticket price!

On Friday, November 4th and Saturday, November 5th, UBC’s Chan Centre hosts the Games in Action conference: two days of panels, presentations and demos from professional game designers, academics, and gamers.

For conference attendees, Emerging Media Lab is partnering with Heart Projector, a Vancouver indie games art collective that produces pop-up arcade nights featuring unique games by diverse creators.

Together, we’re co-curating a two-day arcade featuring 21 games by a range of local indie game studios and independent artists. We have everything from new releases on Steam to experimental retro action games — including a few from developers and designers here at UBC. Want to try this summer’s EML/UBC Forestry project Gamifying Forestry? We’ve got the full version to try out.
