Everyone’s favourite pink conference is back - for two days this time - to bring you another year of artisanal, eclectic and bespoke content.

A game development summit like no other, the Play By Play conference brings game developers of all skill levels together for two days of low-pressure learning and sharing. We aim to engage delegates with a fun, light-hearted atmosphere and a playful approach to improving our craft.

This year’s theme is “The Power of Many” and reflects our strength in community, diversity and the impact our craft can make when we work together.

With Play by Play now being under the NZ Games Festival banner, we've made some changes to the structure of our industry events:

  • As the perfect accompaniment to our conference, we’re bringing back Treat and Greet, a networking event for all of our sweet conference attendees <3

  • For our last course, we’re serving up the delicious Pavs! Our new and improved Awards evening!

These are just some of the many amazing events happening around New Zealand Games Festival. For more events, including workshops, our NZ games exhibition, tabletop sessions and the wildly popular quiz night, please check out our website: nzgamesfest.com

But if you’re here to grab tickets for our game dev industry events you have come to the right place - just keep on scrolling!
