EVENTS AT GDC

GDC is not just about the conference; we have a line-up of events ready for you to network, connect with fellow game developers, and to have a good time. Get the most out of your GDC experience by checking out the events below.

Day of the Devs Lounge by iam8bit and DoubleFine

10:00am - 6:00pm

North Hall, Lower Lobby

Four years ago, Double Fine & iam8bit Twister'd together to create a gathering of gamemakers and the people that play the games those makers make. After a terribly long brainstorm, the soiree was named Day of the Devs - and quickly grew into a rather charming collection of so-called games made by self-proclaimed "independents." While their political affiliations are disputable, what's for certain is that Day of the Devs is a carefully curated set of games that inherently possess the highly coveted qualities of: Personality, Curiosity, Visuality and Really Good Hair. Come canoodle with 12 super cool games, conveniently located adjacent to the terrifyingly long escalators.

GDC Store

9:00am - 6:00pm

South Hall, Street Level

I WANT MY GDC!! by iam8bit

10:00am - 6:00pm

North Hall, Lower Lobby

Would you believe that the very first Game Developer's Conference was conducted in a dumpy 80's living room? Well, it was - so believe it! And in the stubborn instance that you refute such a story, the magicians of nostalgic arts, iam8bit, will make you regret your pitiful attempt at instilling doubt. They'll do so by way of their most audacious GDC installation to date, putting all previous collaborations to embarrassing, tearful shame. Their homage to those early days of the conference will henceforth be known as "I WANT MY GDC!!" - featuring oodles of consoles, collectibles and other game-centric accoutrement, collaged together into a fever dream of button-mashing, keyboard-smashing nirvana. In other words, it'll be a really cool Photo Playset that looks like a retro living room. So come get your snapshot taken!
