MIHI CURA LUDOS FUTURI
The future of the games industry is in our hands. The Waffle Games is a collaborative effort to redefine what it means to be involved in games and their communities. We want to keep fighting for affordable game development education, the legitimization of esports on college campuses, and the recognition of games as an art form. In line with this mission, all attendees, speakers, exhibitors, and volunteers can access the entire convention for FREE. We especially encourage students, faculty, and local studios to showcase their research, skills, and game projects.
A CELEBRATION OF GAMES
The Waffle Games 3.0 is now virtual! Join us for 30 different sessions, including talks, tournaments, an exhibitor hall, and other playful experiences.
Now more than ever, it's imperative we come together and support our communities and what makes them great. This year, we will be collecting donations to help support CUNY campus food pantries and emergency funds for games community members affected by COVID-19.

In 2019, 2 of our exhibiting game developers were still in high school!
