Still recovering from all of the excitement at FACTS last weekend? Well, buckle up, because this weekend it’s time for yet another big convention. Gameforce 2015 will take place on October 3 and 4 at the Waagnatie in Antwerp. Compared to FACTS (which has a lot of cosplay, famous actors, anime and manga), Gameforce is much more game orientated. All the big international publishers will be present: Sony PlayStation, Microsoft, Nintendo, Ubisoft, Electronic Arts and many others will be showing off some of their recently released or upcoming games.
We are proud to announce that four Flemish game developers will also be demoing their games at a shared booth powered by FLEGA. So please drop by to sample the games and have a chat with the developers.

Broken Bots (by Bunnycopter)
Broken Bots is a top-down shooter in which multiple teams battle for control of the map. Play offline or online with friends or A.I.

Guns, Gore & Cannoli (by Crazy Monkey Studios)
Imagine The Godfather playing Metal Slug on the Night of the Living Dead. Guns, Gore & Cannoli is a crazy, comical, and fast-paced action game with beautiful hand drawn graphics. It is set in the Roaring Twenties. The game was released on Xbox One last week, making it the first Belgian game EVER to be released on Microsoft’s popular console.
Not a game, but interesting nonetheless. Howest’s Digital Arts and Entertainment curriculum prepares students for a national or international career in the game or VFX industry.

Other Flemish studios like Sileni Studios (Mayan Death Robots) and LuGus Studios (Liftoff) will also be attending, but with separate booths.
