Following last month’s largest showcase of video games at E3 in June, the creative team at mayamada are gearing up for more gaming fun with support from Ubisoft, Bandai Namco and Nintendo.
mayamada GamePad is a social video game event with a difference. One focused on the positives that come from gaming together; community, making connections and promoting social inclusion through a shared passion, all in a family-friendly environment.
Playing together in the same space may sound like a radical concept to young gamers growing up in a world where gaming is so often done online against faceless opponents across time zones.
Nigel Twumasi, mayamada co-founder said "For a lot of younger gamers, gaming is an online and physically separate activity. With GamePad want people to experience the magic of gaming with friends in the same room."
The summer event follows the mayamada's winter "Gaming For Grenfell" event. The GamePad team were able to make this exciting experience accessible to a community who have been through tragedy, raising money for a local youth in the process.
Experienced and casual gamers alike will get a chance to jump in on a video game lineup that includes fan favourites like Super Smash Bros, Tekken 7, Mario Kart 8 Deluxe and Fifa.
Tabletop gaming will also feature at GamePad, along with an exciting opportunity to cosplay as your favourite video game character!
Whether you’re seasoned or just starting out, cosplayers of all levels can meetup at mayamada GamePad. Slots will be available to get professional cosplayer photos taken and the chance to win prizes for the day's best cosplayer from mayamada.
mayamada GamePad takes place on Saturday August 25th from 12pm to 6pm at the Africa Centre. The event is in collaboration with Colourful Radio and GamePad media partners.
Single tickets are available now at £10 or 3 for 2 group tickets at £20. Children 10 and under go free.
