Boston Gameloop 2020


What is Boston Gameloop

GameLoop is a user-generated conference on game development. It is open to professional game devs, hobbyists, students, critics, and journalists. We especially encourage groups typically underrepresented in game development to please attend.

The best compliment we've gotten is that GameLoop is like a day full of all the best hallway conversations you'd have at GDC, but without the giant price tag and hit-or-miss sessions.


What IS a User-Generated Un-Conference?

A user-generated un-conference is an event where people discuss what topics they want to cover, then pitch those topics as sessions. Our expert moderators then curate all the proposals and create the schedule for the day.

The sessions are usually in a free-form roundtable discussion format; there's a lot of back and forth. And if you want to keep talking about that topic after the session ends, take your new conversation partner to the hallway!

What you get for Attending

For $50 (plus the Eventbrite fee) you get:

  • Great conversations with other knowledgeable game devs about topics you want to discuss
  • The full day unconference
  • A light breakfast
  • A full lunch
  • A great t-shirt
