In Cannes, the games of tomorrow are being played today!

2023 : the Festival celebrates authors by offering them a space to promote their creations.

The OFF NIGHTS attract crowds of passionate gamers over the course of 4 epic nights during which they get the opportunity to play prototypes in a relaxed and friendly environment.

Wednesday 22nd, Thursday 23rd, Friday 24th and Saturday 25th of February 2023 from 10pm to 4am.

These “protonights” are the largest gathering of game authors in the world! So if you feel like you haven’t played enough during the day, come and discover this informal gathering space in which, from 10pm until sunrise, more than 300 novice and experienced authors showcase their prototypes. Who knows, you might just try tomorrow’s most popular games!

The GRAAL (Game Associations Group of Côte d’Azur), will be in charge of welcoming the public and professionals. Registered authors and publishers showcasing their games shall present themselves at the entrance of the dedicated tent on the Palais beach at 9:30pm, 30 minutes before the doors open to players (10:00pm).

If you are an author and wish to present a prototype, please fill in a form.

Like every year it will be a delight to meet the members of le Réseau des Cafés Ludiques (the Game Cafes Network) and la Société des Auteurs de Jeux (the Games Authors Society) who will be present on the four OFF NIGHTS.

Entry to the OFF NIGHTS is free and limited to the venue’s maximum capacity.
NEW LOCATION: look for the dedicated tent on the Palais beach, with access from the sea-side.
