Description


Sweden Game Conference 2018 - October 17-19

Theme - Games & Politics: Reflections on power, play & changing perspectives




Increasingly games and politics intersect within contemporary culture. Together they are topics for discussion and debate across a number of sectors and within diverse communities: within education, development, entertainment, and as drivers for activism and social change.

At Sweden Game Conference 2018, we reflect on how games can influence political perspectives, and vice versa:


  • What role do games play in the current political climate?

  • How are contemporary social issues like immigration, the environment or diversity represented in games?

  • In what way have indie games changed the kind of topics games can tackle?



" SGC 17 was quite an awesome experience. Everyone attending was incredibly nice, from speakers to exhibitors and the parties organized by the local studios wrapped up the entire experience nicely! Oh and there was a pool right next to the convention center! ❤
All in all, SGC is a lovely event in a lovely small city that I see myself attending every year from now on. "

- Nicolae Berbece



As one of the leading conferences
in Europe aimed at game development students and start-ups, the focus of Sweden Game Conference is not only to cover business and development, but to include academia and research as well.

Last year the theme of the conference was Experience the Future: Reimagning Games and it had over 900 participants from 22 countries and 4 continents and prominent speakers from all over the games industry.

" I had a wonderful time at SGC17! I was very intrigued to discover Skövde and all the support that the city offer for games studios. I had so many great, in-depth conversations about games, feminist game design, ethical game production, and the business side of games. Thank you and I look forward to returning again! "

" When I gave the keynote at the 2016 Sweden Game Conference, I joined a roster of first-rate speakers. I was welcomed by a vibrant, welcoming development community. Best of all, I learned as much as I taught (maybe more!). "
