Each day of GDC Summer, which is happening this Tuesday through Thursday, we’ll release a new puzzle (via the Swapcard event platform we're using to host GDC Summer) themed on a different San Francisco Bay Area game museum.
Per local legend, a magical game token is hidden somewhere in each of Bay Area these museums, and when combined together, these 3 tokens will transform into the mythical Galactic Decryption Coin - universal proof of your puzzle-solving prowess!
Every attendee with a Conference or Discovery pass will be able to check in every day (around 11 AM Pacific) for a new puzzle. Each puzzle solves to an answer phrase which punnily describes how to find the hidden token (you’ll get the follow-up to each part of the story after submitting your answers!)
Teams of up to 3 people who solve each day’s puzzle between 11am and 11:59 pm PT that day will be able to submit their contact info for a chance to win that day’s prize. There will be 3 winners each day. The prizes are:
Day 1: GDC 2020 Varsity Hoodie
Day 2: GDC 2020 Backpack
Day 3: GDC 2021 All-Access Passes
Note that while these puzzles mention real-life locations, there is no need to travel anywhere in the real world to solve them, and any references to objects hidden in physical locations are purely fictional!
