Great Exhibition of the North 2018 hosted a Gaming Showcase featuring game developers from across the North.
1upNorth Gaming Showcase was a free to attend and free to exhibit event held at the newly built CIS Building at Northumbria University Campus.
Visitors were welcomed into 4 main play areas as we celebrated the greatest games created in the North of England.
Visitors took the opportunity to learn about the industry, meet the developers and play the games, experiencing everything from retro classics to cutting-edge Virtual reality titles.
Some visitors just came for a look and stayed for hours playing old forgotten childhood games!
1up North was filled with booths from Triple A to Independent, Large Multi Nationals whose roots are in the North to Northern Universities!
During the 2 week showcase 1upNorth hosted gaming workshops, multiplayer competitions, 1-on-1 battles, virtual reality, workshops, hackathons and careers in the gaming sector, culminating in a knockout event prior to the World Cup Final.
