Event description


Sweden Game Conference 2017 - October 18-20

Theme - Experience the Future: Reimagining Games

Sweden Game Conference 2017 will explore how technology and creativity come together to produce original and distinctive experiences. With focus on evolution and forward-change, we will explore how games are advancing technically and aesthetically together.

  • What fresh experiences in game play and narrative can we create through technical innovation and artistic experimentation?

  • How will innovation affect and disrupt future generations of players and developers?

  • What kinds of research and education will we need to support the industry of tomorrow?

" SGC is an excellent venue for developer and student alike. "

- Chris Avellone

As one of the leading conferences in Europe aimed at game development students and start-ups, our focus is not only to cover business and development, but to include academia and research as well. Last year the theme of the conference was Inclusive Game Development and we had over 800 participants from 19 countries and 5 continents and prominent speakers from all over the games industry.

" Sweden Game Conference brings together academia with games industry professionals to help support and educate the next generation of game developers. "

- Alex Grahame

  • Trevor Snowden (Double Moose Games, Snowden Studios, Evolved Talent Agency)
