Gamestart 2018

As with every year, the SGG team visits Gamestart organised by Eliphant - unfortunately, we didn't have a Singapore Pavilion this year. However, SGG was part of a really cool panel titled "How do I survive as a game developer?"

Gwen (myself) had the opportunity to moderate a stellar panel of game devs - Shawn Toh from Battlebrew, Kang Soon from Joysteak, Desmond Hinkson from Republic Polytechnic and Carlo Arellano from Super Evil Megacorp (our guest from overseas!).

2 of our homegrown developers have also won Gamestart's indie award! We're really proud of them both, especially with Cubix being recent graduates of SUTD Game Lab's Game Innovation program.

We're also really happy that our board game partners at Cardboard Crew managed to secure a few tables in the Tabletop section to showcase and teach players different kinds of board/card games!

After 2 fun-filled days of awesomeness, we wrapped up the night with some bak kut teh, accompanying Gamestart's esteemed guests who gave the masterclasses, Jac Jocson and Carlo Arellano, and some of our local dev friends! 

Every year, Gamestart just gets better! If you haven't been or have been hesitating to go for Gamestart, it is THE place to be if you're a gamer/game developer based in Singapore!
