The State of Play is Ireland’s premier Independant Game Maker Event hosted by the School of Media in the Dublin Institute of Technology, in conjuntion with IMIRT, the Irish Game Makers association.

As usual we will have an exciting and ecclectic mix of Inspirational International & Irish Guest Speakers. We then follow it up with the ‘After Party’ which will take place once again on the Rooftop Bar in Odessa. The event will be preceeded by a free games EXPO with over 100 developers, students and industry professionals demonstrating their work.
