Game Development World Championship brings thousands of developers together
The world of video games can be a fiercely competitive one. We don’t need to tell you that, though. After all, you’re reading a website dedicated to esports.
The Game Development World Championship (GDWC) is for them. The GDWC bills itself as the largest game-developer-focused competition in the world. Each year, the GDWC brings together thousands of developers from across the world in a friendly competition.
Developers of games on all digital platforms—think PC, console, mobile, VR, augmented reality) will compete in multiple categories. A jury of industry professionals will select the winners, with prizes ranging from trips to Finland to development software licenses. There’s also a Fan Favorite category, voted on by gamers.
According to a GDWC press release:
Development teams of all sizes and all backgrounds, be it hobbyist, student, indie, or professional are welcome to join. Game Jam projects can also compete in their own category. To participate a game must not have launched before 2021. Early access and in-development games are welcome.
Entry in the competition is free of charge; game developers can submit their games at the GDWC website.
