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!

Yesterday I attended Glasgow’s very own Anime convention and it was a blast. Despite being the city’s only Anime focused convention and its 2nd year running Raicon certainly doesn’t disappoint.

The great thing about conventions like resonate is that it gives people and companies a platform to show off their work. This could be a new indie game, an innovative new peripheral device or something as simple as a knitted Fallout 4 beanie. Up until Resonate, Scotland has not really had many platforms for creators to present their ideas to the public. Resonate appears to be a welcome addition to Scotland's convention scene, and a very welcome to change to the overall climate of the Scottish games industry.
A perfect example of how this is being put to good use was the Glasgow Caledonian University exhibit where students could show off their games to a large audience; this was something which was previously difficult for Glasgow students due to the lack of game focused conventions in Glasgow. Indie showcases are welcome additions to shows all over the UK as it introduces potential players to a game they might never have known about.
