#Jozi getting ready for @rAgeExpo #2015 #SouthAfrica

Hi Guys,

rAGE Expo is a phenomenon you can't miss if you are in Johannesburg or even if you have to travel overnight to come to the city, you must do so. Last year was fantastic and this year it's looking much more awesome with all these new showcases of games, gadgets and technology to take you to a world of strategy, fiction and adventure land. This year offers some of the features which I am going to share with you and also looking forward to enjoy the show first day itself -

Home_coded is an initiative that was started by NAG in November 2012 with an aim to showcase the very best in South African game development talent, and promote local growth in this exciting industry. Not only can you meet the local devs and interview them, but you’ll be able to play all their latest games that are still in development. Sixteen stands will be showcasing over twenty South African-made games

Learn3D, a training centre for the media and entertainment industry, will be showcasing the new Oculus Rift. Don’t miss this one at Stand 5!

Legionink is a community of creatives like no other. 2015 marks their 6th appearance at rAge, from humble beginnings as a small promotional booth to rAge's official Artists' Alley and organisers of the wildly successful rAge Cosplay Competition.
The Artists' Alley is an avenue of exposure for local independent artists that would never be able to afford the price of a full stand at the event on their own, and allowing local art, comic and gaming fans to meet the people behind the work.
The Cosplay competition has well over 100 entries for this year and this annual rAge event sees cosplayers from all parts of the country joining in on the fun.
