Yesterday we promised you another juicy announcement, and here at Gamerbake we don’t break promises. That’s why we’re thrilled to reveal that the first two stops on our 2017 tour will be London and, for the very first time, Brighton!

Our first port of call will be Dalston’s world famous Loading Bar, where we’ll be kicking off proceedings on May 12 with our ‘Let’s Get Retro’ bake off! As the name suggests, we want you to wow our judges with your finest retro-inspired treats, so we’ll be expecting a bucketload of Doom Donuts, Sims’ Souffle and Pac-man Puddings.

As always, we’ll be talking more about our expert judges and mouthwatering prizes in the weeks ahead, but for now you can book your place by shimmying on over to Eventbrite.

Oh, and if you are thinking about coming along (and let’s face it, why wouldn’t you be?) don’t forget that we have two types of tickets for you:

1) I’m bringing along a bake – This ticket is for someone entering a bake into the competition. We have limited these to 20 to stop our judges stomachs from exploding, so please only sign up for one ticket if you do want to enter the contest (your friends can sign up using ticket option 2 if they want to come along and support you).

2) I’m coming to make friends and eat cake – This ticket lets you attend Gamerbake and enjoy the fun without baking a cake. This is the perfect ticket for someone who just wants to eat cake, play games and meet excellent peeps.

Tickets for our events tend to disappear liked warm baked goods — free cake isn’t exactly a hard sell, you know — so get on board early to make sure you don’t miss out!

But wait. We haven’t even spoke about Brighton yet. And that’s a travesty, because our first trip down to the seaside is going to be something special.

You see, as luck would have it, we’ll be heading to the beach on July 11 — just in time for this year’s Develop conference. So with the British game dev scene out in force, we thought it’d be the perfect opportunity to theme our bake off around, well,  the ‘Best of British.’ No Brexit jokes, please.

Will you whip up Grand Theft Auto Ganache, Wipeout Waffles, or Tearaway Tarts? Don’t worry, you don’t have to decide right now. But you might want to grab your tickets well in advance, as we expect demand to be sky high.

That’s all for now. Well, we say ‘that’s all,’ but what more could you want? The promise of two Gamerbakes and all the cake you can eat. If this isn’t the stuff of dreams, we don’t know what is.
