Week 9: Game Developers Conference

Most of the team was away at the Game Developers Conference a.k.a. GDC. At this conference, people from all over the world from all different roles gather to talk about the gaming industry. There are talks from animators, sound designers, lawyers, etc. Students often go to network or show off their schoolwork. It is a great experience whether you’re in your early career or 20 years in, GDC shows the world what’s next!

Although this was a great experience for us, GDC took a week away from production. To prepare for this, we set goals to keep us motivated when come back on week 10.
