Just a few of the many individuals and businesses that make this industry happen. What an inspiration it is to be surrounded by all this talent and motion.





We also wish to thank all the funding support:

With appreciation towards NSCC Truro Campus for on-campus support in my absence.


A Note on NSCC:

I am the Facutly Working Group (FWG) Chair of the  NSCC Game Development program at NSCC Truro Campus, with a focus in the Game Programming concentration. Game conferences have allowed Xona Games to succeed and help keep NSCC up-to-date and relevant. A win-win.


That is all.
