Ideas Test and Margate’s GEEK Play team are bringing three days of creative play to Medway on the final weekend in August.
At the Oast House, Rainham, on Friday and Saturday, August 29-30, the event will open with music and a video gaming carnival on the Friday night.
On the Saturday, all three floors of the venue will be filled with games and play. The top floor is being taken over by the Robot Arena, where you can find making workshops and Mega Battles. In the digital and analogue section, come and play the games you love and learn to play and make new ones. Also on hand: chip tune music, meet Indie Devs, make robot costumes and play Laser Pong.
On Sunday 31st, the game play continues in Rochester, where the Guildhall Museum becomes the hub for a day of play.
Join Dr Sketchy and the GEEK team for some museum based playing before heading out to discover Tourist Trap, Stream the Streets, Special Guests and other games and workshops in and around Rochester High Street. For more information and to buy tickets, visit www.geek-play.com.
