Game Developers Conference: 7 New Things You’ll Love in 2017!

From Gamasutra: As we’re getting ready to put on Game Developers Conference once more (it’s Feb. 27th to March 3rd in San Francisco!), thought it might be a good opportunity, as a co-organizer, to point out some of the new things we’re doing this year – many of which i’m QUITE EXCITED about.

And yes, although we’d love you to get a full GDC 2017 conference pass, a number of these new things can be viewed/played with by Expo Pass holders. More neat things for more neat people! Here’s the highlights:

– Art Boss is a new collaboration between GDC & iam8bit to showcase some of the most gorgeous 2D concept and production art from video games! We got a load of amazing entries, the winners were just announced, and will be viewable on site in a special gallery located next to the Moscone North Expo area. There’s more info about the winners – which span DOOM & Edge Of Nowhere to Toy Odyssey & ArcheAge: Revelation – on the iam8bit Art Boss site, too…

– The inaugural GDC Movie Nights allow you to “discover hidden secrets & amazing truths” via evening movie screenings in GDC conference rooms. There’s free popcorn and a (not free, but you can buy beer!) cash bar, yay.

The ‘Mysterious Game Mysteries’ theme includes screenings of the delightfully bonkers Clue!, starring Tim Curry, Michael McKean, Christopher Lloyd & myriad others, and the sinister, San Francisco-set The Game, the ARG-like ride directed by David Fincher & starring Michael Douglas. All GDC passholders are welcome.
