DamnGeeky presents GameOut – Video game competition for students in Shimla
The city of Shimla is going to be rocked by the juggernaut of gamers on 14 and 15th September as young geeks take gaming to the next level in Shimla’s first ever PC gaming competition split in two separate genres.
Organized by DamnGeeky this event is powered by Arena Animation Shimla and goes by the name GameOut and a tagline “Gaming Frenzy Unleashed” which in itself sums up the theme of this extravaganza. The competition will feature two games – FIFA 13 and Dirt 3, which are quite popular among amateur as well as professional gamers and have been solely chosen on basis of votes by young gamers in the city.
The event has been organized to bring young people together and create a platform for creative activities that will happen in the future. GameOut is a free entry format for children from the age group of 14 – 20 years and is a sole proprietor of DamnGeeky. The event will be organized at Sarab Complex, (Old CCD) Sanjauli, Shimla and will span across two days. On the first day preliminary rounds will take place and on the consecutive day quarterfinals, semifinals, and finals will be held.
The winners in both the games will get gift hampers from sponsors and winners of Fifa 13 and Dirt 3 will receive a one-off custom made trophy that will be unique in itself. While, there will be a separate trophy for the best skilled gamer of the event.
This event is just the beginning of many more events to come that will include robotics workshops, FPS gaming events, Motion controller gaming events, DIY (Do It Yourself), and many more. The motive to select gaming as the main attraction for youth is to make them aware of the time and effort put into developing games by graphics designers, animators, software developers, and VFX artists.
