Join – 2nd Local Multiplayer Summit
1 August 2015 @ 10:00 — 22:0025€
Join, the only event completely dedicated to local multiplayer games, is coming back!
More details will be announced as we get closer to the event, in the meantime you can have a look at the 2014 edition post mortem, sign up to the Localmultiplayer.com newsletter to receive updates in your mailbox and read the basics about the event:
What: Join is a one day event about local multiplayer video games, or “games that can be played by two or more people in the same physical location”. Think old classics like Pong, or, even better, recent ones such as Spaceteam and Johann Sebastian Joust. Everyone interested in the topic is welcome to take part.
Why: Because games that you can play together with other people are our favourite kind of games. They used to rule they world, then the internet arrived and we forgot about them. Now it seems like they’re coming back. To our knowledge, there hasn’t been an event completely dedicated to local multiplayer games yet anywhere in the world (with the exception of the LMPicnic), so we thought we should do something about it.
Where: In Berlin, Germany, a beautiful city – you should visit. The venue is still TBC!
When: On Saturday, August 1, 2015. That’s the weekend just before GDC Europe / Gamescom in Cologne, which is a 4 hour train journey from Berlin.
Who: Join is brought to you by Lorenzo Pilia and Sjors Houkes.
