    2024 Game Development Conference

    at Newman University

    The annual Game Development Conference returns to Wichita Kansas, hosted by Newman University from July 11-13, 2024. Newman is conveniently located less than ten minutes from the local airport by car.  Registration is open now!

    PROGRAMMING 

    GAME PLAYTESTS are held each morning.  Six games are being playtested this year, from which you'll choose three to play; one each on Thursday, Friday, and Saturday.

    WORKSHOPS,  PRESENTATIONS  & PITCH SESSIONS take place in the afternoons. In these  sessions, you'll have the chance to explore mechanics and design principles, hear from your colleagues on their current projects, and  help troubleshoot new games-in-development.

    GAME NIGHTS and other social opportunities happen after dinner--stay tuned for more information on this aspect!

    SCHEDULE

    Regular GDC events will run from 9 AM through 5:30 PM each day, with breaks included
