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.

It may not be as enthralling (or wacky) as a cat cafe timeshare, but Funktronic Labs has something it wants to sell me.  You see, these two guys heard I was wandering around GDC last week with a satchel full of money, j...more

Let Ashes of the Singularity change your notion of large-scale RTS

Real-time strategy titles often feel large-scale by design. There are a whole bunch of units on the battlefield, and the player's tasked with directing them all simultaneously. Even if there aren't that many actual parts in t...more
