NZGDC18 has come to an end! We had a fantastic turnout this year with over 540 attendees across the three days, 93 amazing speakers, 8 workshops, and 149 workshop attendees. Thank you so much to everyone who attended NZGDC!

NZGDC will return in 2019 so stay tuned for more information later this year. See you there!

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.

Speaker Feedback

We'd love to hear your feedback on any NZGDC18 presentations you attend. It not only helps us know how we can improve NZGDC and the quality of our content each year, it also lets us give our speakers feedback on their talks. Enter your name on each submission to go in the draw to win a free NZGDC 2019 pass!

NZGDC18 Merchandise

This year, not only do we have a fantastic line up of presenters, but we’ve also got some sweet NZGDC18 Merchandise that you can buy!
