The first day of the festival, the 6th of July, is purely for Press & Trade Visitors, which gives members of the press the opportunity to play the exhibited games without the hustle of an audience, or a system to set up interviews with developers.

ReVersed is the culmination of many projects grouping themselves under one name.
In the beginning, there was Tom De Roeck, director & film editor, who created “verse publications”, a group with the intention of making games, films, workshops, robots and host events.
Tom De Roeck and his team started by creating the award winning Minecraft Cocktailbot, the first of its kind, which plunges the player into Swedish developer Mojang’s Minecraft world to find blocks of drinks that’ll be served to him through the floppy drive slot of the computer. The Minecraft Cocktailbot has been showcased in multiple venues from the UK to Vienna.
Other projects include workshops; The script writing & storytelling workshops have included Jane Espenson, Richard Dansky, Ed Stern and others. These workshops have been offering the public a comprehensive guide to writing for games or TV, conceptualizing dialogue, how to find your creativity in a team and many more subjects.
Finally, verse publications was responsible for expanding UK’s Radius Festival to Vienna, Austria. For two years, verse publications has organized this festival to offer a free of charge platform to game developers internationally. Game developers were invited to come to MuseumsQuartier in the heart of Vienna to showcase their games to a wide ranging audience. Spread over the course of four days, the participants had the opportunity to meet fellow members of the game creation community, while being exposed to the twitch.tv community and gathered more than 400.000 unique views.
verse publications GmbH was founded in Vienna on the 1st of November, 2011.
Its’ goal: bringing a unique game festival to the heart of Vienna, establishing networking possibilities within the gaming community, launching projects as heads of the IGDA Austria and developing a still unannounced SciFi RPG.
