Gotland Game Conference 2023

The GGC is an annual conference hosted by the department of Game Design at Uppsala University campus Gotland.

The event has three major parts;

  • a public show floor where you can meet our students and play their games.
  • a series of engaging talks by game developers- and designers from around the world.
  • and we round off with a prestigious Awards Ceremony and party, celebrating the end of our academic year. The party is 18+ only!
