Insomnia Gaming Festival
Insomnia Gaming Festival came to Scotland for the first time in May, much to the delight of Scottish gamers. The festival, which has been running for more than 14 years, holds regional events around the UK, with the first visit north of the border being heralded a great success. Little sleep was had over the action-packed weekend as gamers of all ages and backgrounds came together to take part in live interactive shows, play games from across the gaming spectrum and attend panel talks. There was also an ‘indie zone’ to try out new games before they were released, a ‘retro zone’ where gamers could experience classic console titles, as well as opportunities to win cash prizes in free-to-play tournaments and see popular YouTube stars, including Yogscast and Gizzy Gazza.
