This year's event takes place over seven days during October's half-term and features a full day dedicated to Molyneux.
Peter Molyneux's Bootcycle celebrates the Fable creator's life in the industry, looking at past and future projects, as well as inspirations outside of gaming.
GameCity7 also hosts the GameCity STEAM School, which aims to teach people the basics of making video games, focusing on the STEAM subjects of Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Mathematics.
Open to people of any age and experience, the STEAM school will be headed by UK games industry veteran Martin Hollis, TT Games director Jonathan Smith and Lady Shotgun Games founder Anna Marsh.
"The STEAM School is for parents, senior citizens, young kids, families and even students who want to get into the industry," explained Iain Simons.
"I want to make it clear though, despite being part of a festival, this IS a school and has all the things you'd demand from one. Assemblies, school photos, school trips, school dinners and - if the situation calls for it, we have a nit-nurse on hand."
