One of the questions that Ms Elaine of Redwizard Events and GameCon PH was “Are there events on February?” and last year, we answered with “not enough.” A little while after GameCon 2017 ended, they announced their next event to be on February 10-11 2018.
GameCon PH 2018
If we could describe our experience with the first GameCon in one word it would be: Interactive. There were a good amount of booths that let us try innovations like virtual reality, augmented reality, wire loop game, 3D printing, graphics tablet and games of all kinds. From PC games, arcade, mobile, tabletop to card games, the family was complete! Onstage, we got to watch games made by indie companies, partners and students be graded. With the help of the Game Developers Association of the Philippines (GDAP) and International Game Developers Association (IGDA), they are having workshops once again!
Tickets can be bought at all SM ticket outlets or online. P160 for one day pass or P270 for the two-day pass.
GameCon PH Workshops
They are opening the Gamecon Workshop to all ages. The plenary is said to be open to ticket holders while the workshops are only open to registrants. However, slots are LIMITED up to 50 participants only. Fee is P600 inclusive of Certificate of Completion and a 2-day pass to Gamecon Exhibition and Play areas.

Gamecon PH Highlights
Competitions for games like Magic the Gathering, Final Fantasy, Tadhana RPG! The exciting RoboRumble where creative battle robots try to
destroy one another!!! Gamers can have more than one hobby so they’ll also have a Cosplay Competition. Mentioned earlier was the Launchpad where GDAP and IGDA (maybe even CIIT and CSB) will be taking a look at indie games.

Looking forward to a more challenging wire loop game.
