NZGDC18 is back again this year with new dates and a new venue! More information coming soon, but for now make sure to pencil in 01-03 August at SkyCity Convention Centre, Auckland into your calendars

From Small Beginnings

We all know great ideas can come from small beginnings. We’ve seen game jam games become global successes, and small teams grow to large studios. With this year's theme, From Small Beginnings, we want to reflect on where we’ve come from and inspire the next great ideas.
