Proto zone

The BGF supports the creation of games. To discover the games of tommorrow, we have an area dedicated to new creations still in development. An opportunity for authors, beginners or confirmed, to test their games and meet editors. It’s also a nice opportunity for the public to discover the road a game needs to travel before being published.

Golden Meeple-Pis

The Golden Meeple Pis is a contest for game designers. Visitors of the BGF will be able to choose their favorite prototype at the Proto Zone. The winner gets to present their game at the ProtoLab at the Cannes Games Festival (FIJ) which takes place between February 21st-23rd, 2020.

The ProtoLab offers space for exchange and experimentation, and is designed to promote the work of game designers, to let them meet industry professionals and potential players, and to introduce them to the ins and outs of the game industry.
