GDC Play provides an opportunity for emerging developers to showcase their playable games to GDC attendees including distributors, publishers, press, and investors in the GDC Expo's North Hall, March 21-23, 2018.
Themed pavilions host social & online, mobile & tablet, and independent games. GDC Play exhibit packages include a standalone tabletop with monitor, keyboard, speakers, internet connection, and access to a networking lounge for meetings. For information about exhibiting at GDC Play, please contact Brenner Fuller at 603.856.0674 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Ten GDC Play exhibitors will be selected to pitch their games to an opinionated panel of investors and publishers, in front of a live audience (no pressure!) followed by questions, advice, and feedback before the judges declare the day's "Best Pitch" and award a free GDC 2019 All Access pass.
GDC Play exhibitors can select the GDC Pitch box in GDC Connect to be considered and a panel of Gamasutra editors will choose the lineup. Selected studios will be given strict format instructions and rules, a time slot on one of the days, and can have pitch prep and training with GDC Pitch host Jason Della Rocca of investment platform Execution Labs. Studios will be notified by February 27th, 2018. View GDC Pitch 2017 winners and finalists.
