PixelFest 2.017: April 7-9

PixelFest is Norfolk, VA's first dedicated gaming festival.

It began with Midnight Status, a local indie game development studio. They went to Slover Library to see what it would cost to rent some space for a game jam. (A game jam is a weekend long event in which artists and programmers team-up to create their own games!) The people at Slover loved the idea so much that we teamed up and the rest is history!
