“There is no other festival in the world like GameCity”
-The Guardian

“The Sundance of the gaming world” 
-The Times

“GameCity continues to be my favourite game festival on Earth.  It’s not the biggest, but the focus on creativity, the assumption that games are a worthwhile form of expression, and the fact that it is open to the public make it really unique.  What other game event actually has kids in attendance?”
Adam Saltsman, creator of Canabalt
