Users will be able to download dozens of demos and try Indie Megabooth, The MIX, Day of the Devs and Wings titles, as can be seen on their website. In addition, they will be able to see live broadcasts of the developers playing.
Game Developers Conference (GDC), the annual meeting of developers and companies in the video game industry, was going to be held from March 16 to 20 in San Francisco, but it was canceled and postponed until the summer due to the outbreak of the new coronavirus.
Several events have already been canceled as a preventive measure to prevent the spread of COVID-19. In the world of video games, the last event to be canceled was the E3 video game fair, one of the most important in the industry and that was going to take place from June 9 to 11 in Los Angeles.
