Gamers and technology enthusiasts will flock to The Dome in Johannesburg today, as rAge 2013 officially gets underway. The video games and electronics expo is the largest of its kind in Africa and presents visitors with the latest consumer technology and video games available.
With attendance numbers that grow every year, the organisers are expecting even higher delegate numbers this year, and these visitors are in for a treat. In addition to local gaming representation, rAge has also caught the attention of international developers and experts. Attendees this year will have the opportunity to see, play and preview (beta) game code months before official release, as well as experience behind closed doors game presentations on the show floor.
rAge 2013 sees the return of the mind blowing NAG LAN – a thrilling 56 hour event where around 2,000 gamers take part in the largest LAN (local area network) in the southern hemisphere.
Fourteen of SA’s most respected game developers will also be showing off their latest games and visitors are invited to come and play them all. Many of the top developers will be there in person including Free Lives; QCF Design; RuneStorm; RetroEpic Software; Manikin Games; Level 3; Giant Box Games; Rogue Moon Studios; retroFuture; Celestial Games; Steven Tu; Deciduous Games; Made with Monster Love, and Red Dot Lab.
IT News Africa will be at rAge to cover all the action from the showroom floor.
