For the Win: The Hoosier Game Expo

Get your gaming geek on, and join us for a day of non-stop games. Whether you're into the ultra-modern or old-school arcade games, this event has you covered. 

Explore a variety of games, talk to Indiana game designers, try your hand at coding, play some classic arcade games and more. Help local developers prototype their games. Talk to graphic artists, and create your own avatar. Play never before seen games coming to market, and challenge your family to some classics.

At this inaugural expo you'll be able to:

  • Test out board and video games before they’ve hit the market – and provide feedback.
  • Experience virtual and augmented reality. 
  • Prototype or storyboard your own games. 
  • Chat with current game designers about the game-making process, and learn how to start a career in gaming. 
  • Learn about the process behind creating board games, and see games in different stages of development. 
  • Design your own playing cards.
  • Snap a selfie in a virtual photo booth. 
  • Compete in board, card and roleplaying games.
