Talk & Play is a free event that provides the opportunity to game enthusiasts, players and makers to meet in a friendly, relaxed and safe environment. Everybody's welcome, regardless of their background and knowledge level: if you've got any interest in games, we'll make sure you have a good time! This is NOT an event only aimed at developers.

HOW IT WORKS
The event is composed of two parts:
- TALK: Short game-related presentations + announcements from the community
- PLAY: All participants are welcome to exhibit games and projects they've made
If you ever attended the event before 2020, there's a big difference now: the PLAY showcase will run from the start and continue throughout the evening, also during the TALK part. We can do this due to the space layout of the new venue.
