When London Games Festival kicks off, these games will be showcased at the Platform Bar Exhibition.

Elsewhere, London Games Festival will also feature partner events with W.A.S.D, the BAFTA Games Awards and Now Play This. There will also be a Games Finance Market space to help game creators find backing, along with Ensemble — which organisers say will profile “underrepresented ethnicities working in video games”.

Last year, London Games head Michael French told NME why the “renegade, outspoken” British games industry has a home at the festival.
