'Made in Rochester' Game Festival showcases local talent in Irondequoit

ROCHESTER, N.Y. (WROC-TV) - Rochester is home to many festivals throughout the Spring, Summer, and Fall. 

On Saturday, a new festival concept debuted. It was called the Made in Rochester Game Festival. 

More than 20 local developers were able to showcase video games they created at the Irondequoit Public Library. 

Many of those games were seen by the public for the very first time. 

It was a chance for developers to get feedback and bring attention to the local gaming development community. 

"RIT's game design program is rated second best in the country," said Rob Mostyn, Digital Games Hub coordinator. "We have local video game studios, we have hobbyists, you know just people making games in their free time. We really wanted a way to showcase that, for them to get their games out in front of people." 

Organizers tell us the turn out was so great, that they're already looking forward to putting on the festival next year.
