About LCR Play

LCR Play is a local, Liverpool City Region digital connectivity network for the Interactive Entertainment & Gaming Industry.

Our History

Back in November 2013 we began construction of LCR Play (originally called the Liverpool Game Developers Network) in the Baltic Triangle area of Liverpool.

In 2016, we worked with IX Liverpool to bring the Transatlantic Submarine Cables into the Baltic Creative in order to provide creative businesses access to lower latency Virtual Reality and Gaming Servers (via the Southport Landing Stage).

Unfortunately, it had to be removed from the Baltic Creative in 2020 (to make room for car parking) and was later moved to the Factory Building on Watkinson St. Today it has been expanded to cover many locations around the Liverpool City Region.

To date, we have connected over 50 buildings onto the LCR Play digital network, pioneering the deployment of the region’s first Metropolitan Area Network that connects up our local Interactive Entertainment & Gaming Industry (or as some call it, a huge LAN Party!).

Joining LCR Play

LCR play is expanding all of the time, with regular applications to join from Games Companies, Office Landlords and Event Venue Operators.
