Quebec video game industry unites for charity benefit conference

Several Quebec-based game developers have come together to host a new conference that will raise funds for charities.

Organized by grassroots group Techaide, the ‘GGAide’ conference will be a one-day virtual event taking place on September 30 on “the future of gaming.”

Program highlights include the second edition of Next Lev’Elles, an event focused on women in games created by Gameloft Montreal, Ludia Games and Square Enix Montréal, keynote presentations organized by Epic Games and Unity Montreal, and panels with the likes of Ubisoft, Bethesda and EA Motive.

In addition to Gameloft Montreal, Ludia and Square Enix Montreal, Eidos Montréal (another studio owned by Square Enix), Behavior Interactive, Frima, La Guilde du jeu vidéo du Québec, and Legion Labs are supporting GGAide.

Tickets will cost $ 50 and 100 percent of the proceeds will go to Centraide of Greater Montreal, a non-profit organization that fights against poverty and social exclusion. Red barrels (Survive) has pledged to match donations made before and during the event up to $ 7,000.
