Event description


Live game demos. Playtime. Pizza.

Playcrafting is the place to see and play the newest independent games being made in New York and meet the people who built them. Each month, we get together to watch developers explain the mechanics and origins of their games while doing live game demos. Attendees then play each game with the developers behind them. Join our community of game developers, designers, creatives, investors and more building across multiple platforms and genres. Enjoy complimentary pizza as you meet the developers and network with game professionals from throughout our local community. Plus our epic after party. Hope you can make it!

For Attendees:

You must register on Eventbrite. Please include the first name, last name and email of each person you are registering (including yourself) when you RSVP so we can add you to our guest list for the evening. All names must be on the list to get past building security.


A Night Like Tonight

By Team S2B from the 2017 Global Game Jam

A Night Like Tonight is a nautical adventure involving a compelling voice, particularly impassable rocks and carnivorous aquatic mammals.


By Juncture Media

The AVARIAvs battle system is a spin-off on traditional JRPG combat – streaming it into encounters that are swifter, more strategic, and capable of both rich storytelling and gripping PvP. On AVARIA, emotions are dangerous. For the Hume, feeling the wrong emotion might cause an explosion or start a pandemic. For the Eoni, feeling any emotion at all could strip you of your immortality.

Black Emperor

By Tomas Vicuna and BumbleBear Games

Black Emperor is an upcoming arcade game about speed, death, and rock & roll. Black Emperor combines our love for classic action arcade games with Japanese Psychedelic Rock and the Bosozoku motorcycle culture of the 70's.

Burgal's Bounty

By Phat Games

Burgal’s Bounty is a puzzle/action game where you take on the role of Burgal. Burgal is trying to save his girlfriend from the mob, and in order to do that he must steal enough money to pay the ransom! Help him traverse challenging mazes and overcome insane obstacles to save the day!

Don't Look Away

Developed by Made in Brooklyn Games / Published by EOS Interactive

Don't Look Away is a psychological horror experience that pits you against a mysterious entity bent on breaking down your mind, body, and soul before it feeds. Strapped to a chair, bound and gagged, with only a limited ability to reach for what's within your grasp, can you figure out the mystery of the room before it's too late? Just remember, whatever you do, whatever may happen, whatever you may see or hear... Don't Look Away.

In the game, players play quick one minute rounds against others online with the winner taking all the coins!

A boy skips stones in a pond, reflecting on unwavering memories of a lost friend.

Where Shadows Slumber

By Game Revenant

Where Shadows Slumber is a brooding puzzle game that takes place in a shadowy, abandoned world. Anything that is not touched by light has the freedom to change. This governing principle will be your guide in the darkness, but also your undoing. After all, if you are not touched by the light, you have the freedom to change as well... what will you become?
