Make New Friends at London Games Festival!
Playing games on your own is great, but playing games together can be even better. So if you’re looking to meet fellow games enthusiasts, there are some fantastic get-togethers taking place during the 10 days of the London Games Festival.
Royal Festival Hall, South Bank
6 April, 6.30pm–10pm
StreetPass London is a chance for those who own the Nintendo 3DS games console to get together and play its multiplayer titles with other 3DS fans. This is done by utilising the console’s local wireless capabilities. StreetPass London’s next meetup takes place at the Royal Festival Hall (also known as the Southbank Centre). Play games together with other 3DS enthusiasts, from Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate to Legend of Zelda: Tri Force Heroes and Pokémon.
Learn From The Bests
Loading Bar, Dalston
7 April, 7.30pm–10.30pm
As in any other art, game developers usually draw inspiration from other games. Come and share one game that have inspired you, play it in front of the group, and explain why you love it and what you've learnt from it. It's a unique opportunity to see games under a new light and to learn a couple of things from others' insights. The event takes place at Loading Bar, using their projector and consoles – you can even participate while enjoying one of the bar's game-themed cocktails.
London Indie RPG Meetup Group VideoGamesMeet

Though the exact lineup of games won’t be finalised until closer to the time, on the day there will be lots of fan favourites to choose from. There are two game slots starting at 12:15 and 5:00, and anyone can come along to one or both.
