Play NYC 2020!

Founded in 2017, Play NYC is New York City’s premier game convention. It’s an annual celebration of games and the people behind them, featuring the latest from indie developers and larger studios from both the New York area and all around the world.

For the first time, this year’s Play NYC will be online, free to attend, and a full week long. It’s our love letter to New York, from Playcrafting and beyond.

Join us August 10th to 16th to celebrate the spirit of our city with games, talks, tournaments, and more. Games have the power to unite, inspire, educate, and heal. Especially now. We hope you can join us!

Play NYC 2021 will take place from August 7th to August 8th, 2021 at the Metropolitan Pavilion. This summer, we're planning a scaled convention that unites game creators and fans all weekend long along with our annual live stream.

We've been working with venue organizers at The Metropolitan Pavilion to ensure that all local and federal guidelines are being followed to organize a fun and safe event. This will include proof of COVID-19 vaccination or negative COVID-19 test result prior to entry for all attendees as well as regular sanitization and any additional recommended guidelines that are still in place at the time of the event (i.e. mask wearing, social distancing).

ABOUT PLAY NYC

Hosted by Playcrafting, Play NYC is New York’s largest game convention for creators and players alike. Featuring the latest releases from studios large and small, and from developers old and new, Play NYC celebrates every facet of gaming in a way that only the Big Apple can.

Launched in 2017, Play NYC gathers more than 5,000 people for two packed days and nights of games, speakers, and networking events. In 2018, Play NYC returned for a historic second year, packing all 4 floors of the historic Hammerstein Ballroom with games of all shapes and sizes.

In 2020, Play NYC took place 100% online from August 10-16. Take a look at the virtual convention here.

AmplifyING THE VOICES
OF BLACK DEVELOPERS

Graffiti Games is an annual initiative where we spotlight developers from underrepresented groups and give them a platform to create exclusive games for Play NYC. Each person receives a commission to create and show a game that speaks to them and is representative of their own inspirations and work.  In 2018, we supported immigrant developers. In 2019, we highlighted games made by developers in the LGBTQIA community.

Thanks to the generous support from Rockstar Games, we’re honored to amplify the voices of Black developers this year. Check back in August to download the exclusive Graffiti Games!
