AnimeFest (GameFest) 2019 - Dallas TX

#1 Post by sake-bento » Mon Aug 12, 2019 2:17 pm

Woo, last minute thread, but I figured I'd post here for anyone interested.

https://gamefest.org/

AnimeFest has long been a hub for indie VN developers, but this year is a liiiiittle bit different. They've split off into two cons that will be running at the same time - AnimeFest, and GameFest. The cons run in separate (but connected) buildings. AnimeFest is in the convention center, and GameFest is in the hotel. The same badge gets you access to both events (so if you have an AnimeFest badge, you're good to go). The schedules are also separate, so you'll have to look at both of them to get an idea of all the content running this year. GameFest is home to (nearly) all the visual novel content this year, so if you are only looking at AnimeFest materials, schedules, maps, etc. you will not be able to find VNs or any of the lovely devs who will be there. SO. Here's a handy guide to all the VN stuff and where to find it.
