Portsmouth-based technology firm sponsors Guildhall Games Fest for the second year running.

Attention all gamers! This year’s Guildhall Games Fest is one you will certainly not want to miss. Celebrating over 40 years of gaming, from Pong and Pac Man to Fortnite and Minecraft, the Games Fest has something for everyone. The event will be held at the Portsmouth Guildhall, with 6 Gaming zones across 3 floors, spread over two days - Saturday 1st and Sunday 2nd February.

Gamers should expect a Board Gaming Zone, Retro Gaming Zone and, new to Games Fest for 2020, the Innovation Zone. 

After a successful event last year, Novatech return as a sponsor, bringing with them a show-stopping Virtual Reality performance. Gamers will be able to feel the wind through their hair as they ride on the technology firm’s state-of-the-art Virtual Reality roller coaster, powered by their new Reign Gaming PC range

If you don't think you are brave enough to try out the new Virtual Reality rollercoaster, why not have a game of Beat Saber instead?

Over the course of the two days, Novatech will also be running an 8 person multiplayer LAN, giving visitors the chance to play Tannenberg, ShockRods and other games throughout the weekend. But if you aren’t quite up to scratch with the latest games, don’t worry, as Pokemon League will be offering “learn to play” sessions for anyone new to the gaming world.

The LAN event will see Novatech’s Gaming PCs paired with Gaming Peripherals from their long-time partner, Aorus, creating the perfect gaming set-up. 

“We have been working closely in partnership with Novatech for well over a decade and value their support and cooperation. Novatech has great ways of creating immersive and interactive experiences at Gaming events such as Gamesfest and Insomnia. Showcasing a range of gaming products, components and PCs to allow players to test new products and also feel and see the benefits of upgrading to newer technology,” said Neal Till from Aorus. 

Another headline sponsor of the event, as well as Novatech, is Insomnia Gaming Festival. Insomnia will be showcasing some of the biggest games to date as well as hosting multiplayer tournaments. 

Charlotte Garwood from Novatech commented “My team are really looking forward to this event. We can’t wait to see how gamers are going to react to our new virtual reality rollercoaster experience. It's great to be part of another local gaming event and to be working closely with Insomnia Gaming Festival once again.”
