If you didn’t see our announcement, we have partnered with the Tribeca Film Festival to bring you the Tribeca Games Festival. We are so excited about this opportunity The Tribeca Games Festival is going to be something incredible, and we are proud of the collection of emerging independent developers and industry greats that we have assembled. With two days of programming, two stages, and a bevy of fantastic names, the Tribeca Games Festival is not an event to be missed – and it all kicks off with an opening party like no other on Friday, April 28th at 6:30 at 50 Varick Street in New York City.
The Tribeca Games Festival opening night party will feature an arcade of games from indie to mainstream as well as an exclusive crowd play of Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy: The Telltale Series. We will also be releasing a social card game created for exclusively for our opening night party and sponsored by MailChimp. The main event of the evening will be an incredible live concert featuring British electronic music producer and multi-instrumentalist Mura Masa, fresh off the stage at Coachella.
The opening night arcade will offer a first-look at unreleased games like What Remains of Edith Finch as well as new releases like NieR: Automata and VR offerings like Psychonauts the Rhombus of Ruin. You can also join in on the first-ever crowd play of Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy: The Telltale Series. Take part on your mobile device and decide the fate of the galaxy’s bumbling defenders by voting on each crucial decision as a group, for better or worse. Also, MailChimp has sponsored an exclusive social game to be premiered at our opening night party. Trade currency strategically with very little knowledge of its value and, at the end of the night, cash out for real prizes.
The Tribeca Games Festival opening night party will get you amped and ready for day two of the festival, a day of rich onstage conversations looking at the past, present, and future of videogames. We hope to see you at the festival in two weeks!
