The fifth annual Game Devs of Color Expo will be fully online for 2020! The NYU Game Center is proud to sponsor the Game Devs of Color Expo, where you can see incredible talks and games from game devs of color from around the world, including NYU Game Center faculty, students, and alumni.
At the virtual Game Devs of Color Expo, new and experienced game developers will share, learn, and connect in unique ways. This year’s event will feature main presentations within a private online conference space that supports conversations between attendees. The Expo will also host exclusive developer interviews through their Steam showcase, Gradient Convergence. You’ll be able to support creators of color by playing their games in the comfort of your home!
