BAFTA’s Inside Games Arcade offers British developers the opportunity to showcase their latest games to the public. Featuring titles from individuals and larger development studios, Inside Games Arcade promises the gaming public a unique opportunity to discover the diverse range of games being created here in the UK, as curated by BAFTA’s Games Committee.
Kelly Smith, Head of Television and Games at BAFTA, said: “The selection of games that BAFTA will showcase at Inside Games Arcade will celebrate the finest talent that the UK games industry has to offer. We’re looking to feature a broad spectrum of games that will appeal to a variety of attendees, so regardless of the platform, genre or background of the game’s developers, everything will be considered.”
As long as games are in a playable state and created here in the UK, they will eligible for exhibition at the event.
