VGM CON 2018

“When I was young, I used to put PlayStation discs into my CD player to listen to the soundtrack” reflects VGM CON founder Thomas Spargo. “People thought it was really strange, but as a result, about 90% of my music collection is from videogames. This music spilled over into my classical guitar repertoire and now I make arrangements of videogame music. VGM CON was created to bring together a community of like-minded people and to inspire others to use their passion for videogames to develop skills in the arts, whether they be musical, visual, or the written word.”

Other highlights from this year’s event will include a 24-hour Midwest Game Jam, a talent show, a Super Smash Bros. tournament, an educational youth strings clinic, and a vendor room.
