Exhibition part of Dare to be Digital to provide insight on game development

The organisers of Dare ProtoPlay have announced that AMD will be the lead sponsor for the event.

As well as allowing the public to play the prototypes submitted to the Dare to be Digital competition, the showcase  will provide visitors with a hands-on look at the process of developing a game through multiple interactive exhibits regarding art, music and storyboard creation.

 “We are delighted to welcome AMD on board as the lead sponsor of Dare ProtoPlay,” commented Paul Durrant, Dare to be Digital project director.

“It’s a unique event in the games industry, designed to let adults and children enjoy playing and learning more about video games at the same time.  Serious students can also use it to find out more about what’s involved in preparing for a career in games development.”

Dave Everitt, European product and platforms manager at AMD, added:  “We are proud to be lead sponsors of Dare ProtoPlay because it is the ideal showcase of innovative video games, made by the next generation of designers.

“We have long supported the enthusiast market and are fully behind a competition that will help to advance video game design, and allow enthusiasts to have the chance to develop their skills in an exciting environment.”

The event runs from August 12th to 14th as part of the Edinburgh Interactive Festival.
