nz games festival is new zealand's own international celebration of gaming, for all ages
From workshops to pub quizzes, NZ Games Festival has a little bit of something for everyone and we can't wait to share it with you.
NZ Games Festival began its life as Play by Play in 2016.
In 2018, we created the umbrella brand, NZ Games Festival, to better encapsulate everything Play by Play had become. Meanwhile, our developer-focused conference retained its identity as Play by Play. Now, NZ Games Festival sits as the umbrella over top a number of brands, including Play by Play, The Pavs and Level Up.
