November 14 – 20
A week-long, virtual celebration of games and the visual arts beginning Saturday, November 14 through Friday, November 20, 2020. Throughout the week, visitors will have the opportunity to play games and attend events that provide an in-depth exploration of game design.
The second annual GameFest allows participants of all ages to play eight different games, designed by independent game developers–everyone from up-and-comers to pros. Games will be accessible for free 24/7 through a virtual, interactive space designed by the students and faculty at Kent State University. Each day, different events will be held that explore game design, offer a deep dive into this year’s featured games, and provide social activities for families and friends.
Take a guided walk through the virtual arcade and learn about the different games and designers featured this year.
