DevGAMM Kyiv 2013 is over, organized by Renatus Media, LLC!!
This year the conference broke all possible records!
It was attended by more than 1300 participants! Many of them have never been to game events before, so we are happy to encourage young teams on their way to the game industry.
The program was rich and interesting, its main focus was on technical speeches about game design, art, producing and community management.
37 speeches, 4 round tables, around 10 blitz-sessions and Game Lynch, of course!
It was a pleasure to hear brilliant speeches from Amanita Design, Rovio, Zeptolab, FDG Entertainment, Wargaming, visit the round table with VKontakte team and lots of others.
Speech slides and videos will be available on our website very soon.
Subscribe to our channel on youtube, twitter, facebook, vk to never miss any updates!
We received over 130 vacancies for the Vacancy Wall and had to use nearby walls to place them all.
Our premiere event, GAMM:Play Game Showcase, became a huge success.
There were 4 streams of developers showcasing their projects in the exhibition zone and getting feedback on their games. It’s in our plans to further develop this project.
Traditionally, Speed Game Dating was the most efficient way to connect with publishers. The smashingly successful SGD and crowds of people, eager to partake in it, suggested that we must be more exigent in choosing the next year games.
