DemoNight is the chance for studios to show off their work-in-progress games to the Montreal development community. These are all pre-release games – some are from big studios, some are indie projects of passion that we’ve never heard of before. All will be presented in real-time (no pre-baked marketing fly-throughs allowed) in a strict 5-minute format.
Of special interest, Intel is hosting their Montreal edition of the Buzz workshop series during the day. Patrice Desilets is keynoting, with panels on funding, tech, design, etc. So, go get a full day of learning and networking before diving into all these awesome demos!
