Arcade 11 Celebrates Video Games

Between March 4th and 6th, Concordia University hosted a free video gaming expo in the EV Building.

The event was called Arcade 11, and was part of the third edition of Montréal Joue, a festival open to the public which celebrates gaming culture and projects of all sizes being created in the city.

“I think we have something special here in Montreal and we’re really happy to be able to promote it to everyone, because it’s not known,” said Claude Ayerdi-Martin, an organizer for Montréal Joue. “We know the big studios sometimes – people know Ubisoft for example – but we have more. We have a lot of amazing studios and creators.”

Arcade 11 featured several experimental and independently designed games making use of a wide variety of familiar and innovative technologies such as the Oculus Rift virtual reality headset.
