Game Developers Conference 2015
has opened a call for submissions
to ALT.CTRL.GDC -- an on-site special exhibit focusing on unique control methods for playing games.
The much-lauded ALT.CTRL.GDC returns to GDC from March 4-6. The deadline for submissions to the exhibit is on December 23rd, welcoming all indie-centric one-of-a-kind game peripherals, contraptions, and novelties which enhance game experiences and challenge traditional forms of input.
Teams for each chosen submission will be asked to showcase their games to GDC attendees at the ALT.CTRL.GDC exhibit area on the expo show floor. They'll also receive a pair of All-Access Passes and a pair of Expo Passes, for a total of four free passes to GDC 2015. In exchange for the passes and free exhibit space, teams will be responsible for their own travel and the delivery of their exhibit submission to GDC in San Francisco.
Those interested in participating in ALT.CTRL.GDC should fill out this online form
in its entirety. Any questions about the form or the exhibit should be directed to ALT.CTRL.GDC's organizer, John Polson
This will be the second time ALT.CTRL.GDC appears at GDC, and we're excited to see entrants unleash their creativity; last year, caterpillar sim ROFLPILLAR
, missile console panel Analog Defender
, choose-and-print-your-own-adventure arcade Choosatron
, canine-astronaut VR-MIDI sim Please Don't Space Dog!
, and one-dimensional input devices A Dozen Sliders

, and SlashGear
Organizers are also preparing a host of other exciting interactive exhibits for GDC 2015, to be announced in the coming months.
