Playtopia MGA 2019
“Collecting the best of local art and games alongside international contemporaries, Playtopia MGA promises to be one of a kind African gaming and tech art celebration”.
Taking cues from international alternative games festivals, Playtopia MGA 2019 marks South Africa’s debut homegrown celebration of games and interactive art in Cape Town. Producing a series of surprise global hits, South Africa’s game makers have landed upon the international map, and Playtopia MGA stands to celebrate the country’s diverse game development and immersive arts community, to inspire the next generation of creators, gamers and enthusiasts.
