The Game Developers Conference (GDC) is the world’s largest professional game industry event. It attracts over 26,000 attendees, and is the primary forum where programmers, artists, producers, game designers, business decision-makers gather to exchange ideas and shape the future of the industry.
The SWISSGAMES area at GDC presents a selection of games and technologies developed by 18 independent studios and start-ups, 13 studios are joining the Matchmaking Event Game Connection America and 3 game studios are representing Switzerland at the European Game Showcase. Other studios will show or talk about their projects at Unity 3D Art Challenge or at the GDC conference. All in all, 26 Swiss teams are taking part in GDC. They will also be joined by managers of the Ludicious – Zurich Game Festival and by several Swiss journalists.
The SWISSGAMES selection reflects the diversity of this developing industry in Switzerland. It includes games with innovative design for every platform, as well as groundbreaking technologies. This year’s special focus lies on young, emerging Swiss studios on the one hand, and on interactive and immersive Virtual Reality experiences on the other.
