- play prototypes of the games not yet released, to actively participate in their development process,
- meet young game developers and publishers,
- spend time with friends and relaxing,
- participate in tournaments.
At Niucon we welcome another year again with the battle games. A year ago, the idea was met with enthusiasm and joy – so we made sure that this year you will be able to enjoy it as well. Just like a year ago you will learn how to paint your figure and you will see amazing armies of different systems and battlefields. We are planning demonstrations and the presence of different systems (those for seasoned as well as those for the layman), and we encourage you to bring your own army.

Artists give shape to our fantasies, desires and passions, create characters with whom we identify, which we love or hate. This department will be of interest not only for the future cartoonists, musicians and dancers, but also more experienced artistic souls. We do not forget, of course, about cosplayers – you too will be able to find something there for yourself. Here, too, LARPs will be held – from freeforms or jeepforms to narrative chamberlarps.
Art Workshop – Coordinator MangakaBlock not only practical, but also rich in theory – especially in self-criticism and difficulty with self development. The artist is also someone who is struggling with internal demotivations, reducing not only practical development, but also self esteem. Demotivations act secretly, tempting us with easy reward, but also punishing for the slightest mistake. We do not know of its existence, but he isthere – lurking in the corners of the room.
This block contains numerous panels: theoretical, practical, but also purely playful, cultural, and even projection. Start finally be an artist for yourself!
