Here are your 'Best in Play' winners for GDC Play 2019!

The teams behind these eight winning games will receive All Access passes to next year's GDC, as well as a special award they can show off while they demo their winning game at GDC 2019 next month!

Today's the day: Organizers of the 2019 Game Developers Conference, are excited to reveal the eight winners of this year's Best in Play awards!

This award program is part of the popular three-day GDC Play 2019 event, which helps emerging developers showcase their work at GDC. Having your game selected as a winning entry is kind of a big deal, because all GDC Play exhibitors had their games (not all of which are finished) judged by a panel of veteran GDC organizers.

Now, each of these eight Best in Play award winners (listed below) will receive 2 All Access Passes to the 2020 Game Developers Conference. Winners will also receive special 'Best In Play' designations they can attach to their table at GDC 2019, where their games will be playable by all GDC attendees!

Plus, if you're a GDC All-Access Pass holder you can directly contact all GDC Play exhibitors via the GDC Play Matchmaking Software.

Again, all of these games will be available to play in the GDC Play onsite exhibit this year at GDC Play 2019, which will be open Wednesday through Friday (March 20th through the 22nd) inside the Moscone Convention Center.

This year there will be a VR Play area, supported by HTC, where you'll be able to play an assortment of VR games!
