The GDoC Expo has become a premier setting for professionals to meet and exchange ideas. Game development can be a complex and exhausting process, and it’s important that creators have access to a support network capable of seeing them through the toughest of it.
Events like this are a great way not only to find out more about developers and games you might not have heard about, but also to learn more about game development in general.
More information is coming soon! Subscribe to hear when we add new games, speakers, and more! We send emails less than once per week.
