The East Africa Gaming Convention or as known as E.A.G.C. or GamesCon as some were heard saying, was held at the popular Two Rivers Mall that is known to be the largest Mall in East and Central Africa. It started on 15-16th of April on the Easter weekend and it was filled with a large crowd of gamers, game developers, game retailers, eSports competitors, cosplayers and gaming enthusiasts alike.
We had a FIFA 17 and Mortal Kombat XL tournament that was administered by Vivid Gold who did a stunning job as it was very competitive. We also had game developers such as Mashariki Mobility that made Adventures of Navana, Weza Interactive that made Mzito and Adala Studios. On the game retail section, we had Vivid Gold selling a huge library console video game for PlayStation 4 platform,, Xbox One as well as some Nintendo games and equipment such as gaming headsets, cameras, game controllers, and they even had the PlayStaion VR and just announced Nintendo Switch
On the other awards booth were Blaze Kenya and Liquid Telecom. Blaze Kenya were notably dressed in Star Wars cosplay suits and were very vibrant soaking in the moment of fun dancing to the music and interacting with the attendants and audience of the event. Liquid was advertising their home package that is currently tailored to fit the gamers online gaming requirements. They hooked up the place with a Gigabyte enabled router to serve everyone in the event.
At the Gaming For Kenya booth, we had PC gamers enjoying their moment of a LAN party connecting and playing with and against each other. The PC gamers haven’t had their dose of a LAN party for weeks and so this was their platform to have one. They were playing several games from Battlefield 4, Insurgency, Mortal Kombat X, Call Of Duty: Modern Warfare 3, Rainbow Six Siege and many other games. They also heard several driving simulator kits to test gamers driving skills.
Also there were notably other exhibits such as the artists, the cosplayers, YouTubers and more.
We are looking foward to the next EAGC or otherwise the next gaming event which is coming very soon as we have word.
