Game Rev 2022, powered by Mountain Dew, Pakistan’s largest industry-led gaming event, has come to a triumphant close following an incredible day of seminars, Tekken tournaments, networking, Game Jam, and a fireside talk with the industry’s and academia’s best brains.
Game Rev is the idea of GameTrain, an IT accelerator with the goal of revolutionizing the gaming and IT industries by bringing together industry executives, academics, students, developers, and esports stars to promote gaming as a job and way of life. As the sector’s flagship event, Game Train collaborated with its partners to produce a range of events to raise awareness and celebrate the gaming industry’s rapid expansion in Pakistan.
Game Rev kicked off on April 1, 2022, at Beaconhouse National University, with over 3000 people in attendance. Following a lively workshop on Game Design and Blockchain Development, as well as a session on Work Culture in Gaming Studios, attendees were then escorted to a Fireside Chat with Industry Leaders and Academics, as gamers competed in an exciting Tekken tournament.
The event featured a separate networking room for industry executives and senior professionals from 80+ firms, as well as distinguished guests, and the proceedings were concluded with an exhilarating performance by SomeWhatSuper, one of the country’s top EDM performers.
