As a part of WashingCon’s events, we excited to announce that we will be giving local game designers a chance to demo and playtest their unpublished games in the Unpub Protozone. 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.
This year’s Unpub Protozone will be run by Darrell Louder, the Director of Unpub and the designer of Compounded and Bottom of the Ninth from Dice Hate Me Games. The event will have 16 three-hour slots with eight slots available on Saturday and eight available on Sunday. Registration will open on the Unpub website at noon on Tuesday, July 12. While game designers can sign up for free, they will need a ticket to WashingCon to register to demo their games.
In addition to the Unpub event, there will also be many game designers and game publishers in attendance, giving local designers a great opportunity to network with other members of the industry. Check back on this blog, Facebook, and Twitter for more announcements about WashingCon soon.
