Please register in advance to ensure you can participate! The gaming lounge is hosted by Red Iron Labs. Red Iron Labs (aka "Red Iron", aka RIL) is a small studio hustling in Alberta to make technology accessible to all. We view technology as an extension of our community centered activism where we have the opportunity to create welcoming, inclusive, accessible spaces for all through our games, projects and VR simulations. Gaming is in our DNA and we have leveraged our skillset to apply game theory to educating and creating meaningful experiences. We believe that if you can dream it we can build it, and if we build it they will come.
