The New Zealand Game Developers Association today announced that tickets are now
available for New Zealand’s premier game development conference.
The New Zealand Game Developers Conference (NZGDC) is an annual professional game
development conference for primarily a New Zealand audience. It focuses on practical and
inspirational content, and provides networking opportunities with international guests.
“The NZGDA is dedicated to working with Kiwi studios to grow New Zealand’s game industry
to a $1 billion dollar sector within 10 years, and NZGDC is key to stimulating that growth.
NZGDC is an opportunity for developers to come together to share their knowledge and
experiences, and help each other in the pursuit of making great, globally recognised games,”
says NZGDA Chairperson James Everett. “The theme this year, Luck by Design, is about
dispelling the myth of the ‘overnight success’. The NZ game industry has seen more than
350% growth since 2012, and we can accelerate it further by equipping developers with the
tools to create sustainable momentum.”
Last year NZGDC drew more than 500 game developers to Auckland. This year is going to
be even bigger with a full three day programme of workshops, talks, and panels across
every aspect of game development.
