Game Developer Conferences worldwide will now show off more games as the organizers of the GDC have announced the debut of a new event for developers to showcase their games. 

Inspired by the success of the Independent Games Festival Pavilion at GDC events, this GDC Play showcase will include space in special Pavilions themed around emerging game markets. This program will allow GDC Play exhibitors to show off their games to other attendees, publishers and press members.

This program will kick off at GDC Online 2011, to be held in Austin on October 10-13, with a special GDC Play Pavilion on the show floor Tuesday, October 11th and Wednesday, October 12th at the Austin Convention Center. A bigger presence is planned for the Game Developers Conference 2012, to be held in San Francisco March 5-9, with separate GDC Play Pavilions for social & online, smartphone & tablet, and independent games. 

This is going to be great for upcoming talent to show off their wares to the people that matter most. It's also going to be a great way for us to get our hands on lots of new games at GDC events.

Have you played Rhythm Doctor?

How have I missed Rhythm Doctor? We gave it a brief mention last year, but I guess I missed that. The first I heard of it was last week at GDC. Walking past the IGF booth, I saw a guy with headphones on, bobbing his head while mashing a huge button. Curious, I walked over. I saw an on-screen cardiograph and a little samurai bobbing its little head. I was hooked from there. more
