Game Developers Conference organizers are excited to announce the lineup of exhibitors for the all-new GDC Retro Play, a brand new interactive space at GDC 2017 that specifically concentrates on showcasing retro consoles, computers, games and related memorabilia!
Expanding on previous GDC showcases from the National Videogame Museum and others, GDC officials are donating free space adjacent to the GDC Play indie dev-centric part of the show from Wednesday, March 1st to Friday, March 3rd to these selected retro game collections or organizations.
