Coatsink has confirmed sponsorship for GaMaYo on 23rd November at Tileyard North thereby ensuring that 300 developers already registered for the event will get their first drink for free!
Coatsink formed in 2009 and has grown into a diverse and versatile development studio and indie Publisher which is now part of the Thunderful Group. Coatsink is based in Gateshead and has created and published games for all current gen consoles, PC and Virtual Reality, including the recent games Onward, Cake Bash, Transformers: Battlegrounds, PHOGS!, Jurassic World: Aftermath and the company has also spent many years of co-development on Gang Beasts.
Coatsink CEO Tom Beardsmore said “It is great to be joining and supporting this free event, and we are looking forward to seeing the new games on show as well as meeting fellow developers from across Yorkshire and The North.”
GaMaYo is taking place as part of GameDevDay which is being sponsored and hosted by Tileyard North. Over 300 developers from across Yorkshire and The North have registered to attend, alongside publishers, investors, platform-holders and leading studios. The event is also being sponsored by Lenovo. The event forms part of the 20th Anniversary celebrations of Game Republic that has been supported by Official Partners Red Kite Games, Escape Technology and Barclays.
MD of Game Republic Jamie Sefton said “It is great to have Coatsink onboard – we are really excited about this event, in particular because we have had such a good response to hosting it at Tileyard North, a much bigger venue in Wakefield, which has meant we could include more new game demos and an arcade, as well as announce our Game Republic 20th Anniversary Award winners at the event too. None of this would be possible without games industry support.”
GaMaYo members and Game Republic memebers can get free tickets for the event, and all members should have the code to secure their free place.
