The Montreal Expo Gaming Arcade was back at Bonsecours Market this year! It got even bigger and better! The event took place from Friday to Sunday.

Last year’s first iteration was very good! I got to play a lot of local indie game developers’ games! Again this year, at the venue you can find an event hall as well as a Multi area. The Multi was the place to relax and play multiplayer games with friends or even watch panels!

A bunch of new things were at the event this year. The Premiere area was one of them. eSports tournaments happened all weekend long there! You could also play a bunch of old school retro games in the retro zone! I obviously had to play Mega Man X!

Last but not least, the MIGA awards ceremony took place on Sunday, where the very best indie games at the show were rewarded with trophies of excellence in categories like narrative or sound design.

Enjoy this small video recap of my time at MEGA 2018! See you next year!
