What is Radius? A celebration of games for everyone
Radius is a video games event from London. We currently run two different events: Radius festival and Radius nights. Radius is a not-for-profit event supporting developers and the gaming community.
What is Radius Festival?
Founded in 2013 as ‘Etoo’ and becoming Radius Festival in 2014 it is like no other games event out there. Radius’ philosophy is to bring games to everyone. It is presented directly by developers and designed to inspire people to engage, learn and interact with each other in a vibrant surrounding. Radius involves its developers and visitors directly: During the day exhibition, our devs showcase their games to try out and play. On our live show we are joined by the devs, surprise guests, guest-presenters for evenings full of fun and entertainment.
At Radius Festival all visitors can play all games, hang out and chat directly with the developers. The streamed evening live show takes place each of the festival nights after the exhibition and has proven incredibly popular, reaching large audiences worldwide. Since 2015 we have added the Radius Game Jam to the programme, which was presented by Rami Ismail of Vlambeer.
What is Radius Nights?
The popularity of the live show led to the creation of Radius Nights – smaller evening events that take place throughout the year with a round of gamers and developers discussing all things games streamed across the internet. We want the public to engage with the developers and their games and vice versa.
