International game music superstar Chipzel, who creates dance music from Game Boy consoles, will open Scotland’s biggest video games festival today (Thursday 13 August). Dare ProtoPlay is held as the finale of Abertay University’s Dare to be Digital game design competition, which this year sees 16 teams of students building games at their home universities. The students then travel to Dundee to show their games to the public. Last year’s Dare ProtoPlay festival attracted over 13,000 people across four days. Chipzel is performing in the Caird Hall on Thursday evening from 9-10pm as part of the programme of the Edinburgh Game Symposium: ProtoPlay Edition.
