The Buffalo Game Space opens at the Tri-Main Center

On the heels of facilitating Mayor Byron Brown's "Serious Computer Game Design Competition," the Buffalo Game Space is inviting Western New Yorkers to a grand-opening celebration at 7 p.m. Saturday, March 28. BGS is hosting the event at its new home in the Tri-Main Center on Main Street in Buffalo.

This free event will be open to the public and will have activities, including game stations, a 50/50 split, a local-business-centered basket raffle and door prizes. One of the headline events is a live performance from local chiptune musician "Danimal Cannon."

The Buffalo Game Space has been busy since its Kickstarter campaign in October. BGS moved into the Tri-Main Center last month and staffers have been working around the clock on renovations to get the space ready to open.

"We wanted to throw our first event as a big 'thank you' to all of our community. Without them, we would not have this great space to help support WNY game developers," Buffalo Game Space board member Benjamin Lord said.

Buffalo Game Space is a nonprofit organization that is dedicated to expanding local game development in Western New York. Its mission is to bring local game developers together and provide them classes and an open space to work and collaborate. In doing so, BGS plans to keep local talent local, making Buffalo an epicenter for game development
