Welcome Back to Play NYC!

Welcome to
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 is back live and in-person at the Metropolitan Pavilion this August! Now, more than ever, is the time for us to unite through our shared love of games. In its 5th year, Play NYC will once again feature playable games from studios large and small, and from creators old and new. Join us for a weekend like no other on August 7th and 8th in New York City!

This year, we’re adding some new measures to deliver a fun and safe experience for every attendee. We will require proof of COVID-19 vaccination prior to entry for all attendees. A negative test result taken within 48-hour will be accepted for children under 16.

Play NYC is for anyone who loves games. Whether you're a fan looking to play and discover games of all kinds, a creator looking to showcase your playable projects, or a professional in the industry looking to see what makes gaming in New York so special, you don't want to miss out! All ages are welcome as we celebrate games in a way that only the Big Apple can.

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!
