Buffalo Game Expo '18 Event Recap

This past Saturday, we at Buffalo Game Space hosted our third annual showcase of locally made video games and board games, Buffalo Game Expo 2018. We think the event was a great success, with nearly two dozen games featured, their creators there to chat with the attendees as they played their creations. We'd like to follow up the Expo with a post highlighting all the games hosted at the event, as well as their creators. If you were at the event and played something you'd like to follow and purchase, or if you couldn't make it and want to get an idea of what you missed, read on!
