The 3rd annual #MadeinMA party at Microsoft NERD was again a huge hit for the games community! The sell-out crowd of more than 1000 gamers was proof that the gaming industry in MA continues to thrive. With a mix of companies, executives, press and students, MA showcased how it has a lot to celebrate! The party kicked-off the weekend-long gaming exhibition at the Boston Convention Center which brings in more than 60,000 gamers to check-out the newest games from across the country. Among the big releases, it was great to see a fabulous showcase from Boston Indies including Owlchemy, Dejoobaan, The Tap Lab and Firehose Games to name a few.
The party has become a great tradition for game executives and developers to convene for a night of networking and checking out what MA has to offer in gaming. MassTLC is pleased to host this signature event for one of Massachusetts up and coming creative industries.
It was fun filming and interviewing a ton of folks at the party and PAX. Watch for the video, soon to be completed that captures all that Massachusetts has to offer.
Special thanks to our sponsors: Microsoft, GSN, Goodwin Procter, Zynga, Viximo and ESA. A special thanks to Helena Fruscio @createma, the new Creative Economy Director from the State who took on the ambassador role for the entire weekend.
