Sweden Game Arena at GDC17
Sweden Game Arena went to San Francisco last week, to exhibit at the Game Developers Conference together with almost 20 Game Developers, Lecturers, Researchers and Business Coaches from the University of Skövde and The Game Incubator.
Accompanying us were developers from the Internet Game Database, as well as indie studios Mostly Harmless Games and Lone Hero Studios, showcasing their VR games Munch VR and Fatebound on site. In total there were over 20 playable PC titles available in the booth from both companies and student groups in our network, including Lance A Lot, Clustertruck and Notes of Obsession.
Many people came by during the expo days, and nearly 200 visitors took the chance to compete for free passes to Sweden Game Conference 2017 by successfully tossing their business cards through the hole in the wall.
The winners will be announced on our facebook, twitter and website, so keep an eye out and stay tuned!
