2022 Games For Change Festival Reveals Dates & Information

Organizers behind the 2022 Games for Change Festival have revealed their plans for the 2022 event, including dates and programming notes. The event is currently set to happen from July 12th-15th, with in-person events set to happen in New York City from the 12th-13th, but they haven't revealed the official event space that will be held at yet. The first two days are going to be filled with curated talks, workshops, and arcades, all designed for people to chat and network, while the remaining two days (14th-15th) will be a free virtual festival with streaming content. The goal for this year is basically to return to form as "the largest industry-facing event for social impact games in the world." We have a little bit more information on the festival for you below as they are currently taking submissions for speakers as well as nominations for Game Of The Year, in case you have people to nominate.
