We are excited to announce that we will be giving local game designers a chance to demo and playtest their unpublished games in the Unpub Protozoon. Unpub is an organization dedicated to helping game designers get their games published. Over the last six years, publishers have signed over 100 games shown as Unpub events, including games created by our very own Ben Rosset and Matt Grosso such as Between Two Cities, Brew Crafters, and Dead Last.
Here are a few important details about this year’s Unpub Protozone:
While game designers can sign up to demo for free, you will need a ticket to WashingCon to get into the event to demo your games. If you haven't bought your tickets yet, pick them up at washingcon.com
The Protozone will have 20 three-hour slots with ten slots available on Saturday and ten available on Sunday
While the official time blocks that people sign up for will end at 6:00 pm, the tables will be available on a first-come, first-serve basis from 6:00 pm to 10:00 pm both nights
