On the Sunday just passed I attended a fairly local event in Scotland, Play Expo Glasgow. Scotland has always been a hub for game developers, with deep roots in game development history. Such as the original, and continued, development of Grand Theft Auto. Last year, I attended Resonate Insomnia and its great to see more gaming events popping up!
Last Saturday me and a small number of friends attended PLAY EXPO GLASGOW which was held a Braehead Arena just outside Glasgow city centre. PLAY Expo being a Games convention hosted by Replay Events Ltd which itself declares the Expo as "The UK’s favourite video gaming expo", this is the first time the popular UK wide games convention has come to Scotland. In this article I shall discuss my time at the Expo as well as what it had to offer.
Play Expo has just announced its first fourteen indie studios for the October Expo and in its line up of names are Fully Illustrated with Wulverblade one of the first 25 games selected under the ID@Xbox titles.
