From design, development and publishing, to education and application, the week will showcase games and their role as Scotland’s secret weapon in the tech sector. The event will also act as a catalyst to support a more connected and collaborative games sector across Scotland, the UK and internationally.


Kirk Dailly, Partner and Head of Corporate & Commercial, Blackadders, said: “We are delighted to support the inaugural Scottish Games Week as gold sponsor and exclusive legal partner.  It’s a natural fit for us as our Video Games team has a real passion for supporting developers and innovators across the industry, and over the years we have advised on a number of Scotland’s top video games deals.  The programme looks very exciting and we can’t wait to play our part.”

The tools and technologies from games are powering the current generation of Hollywood blockbusters and enabling the evolution of the metaverse and our digital future. Blackadders has established a strong presence within this rapidly evolving ecosystem and we were thrilled to welcome them on board as a sponsor. They bring enormous credibility and experience to the event and we’re delighted to have them involved in the programme.”
