Good news, game makers: The 2016 Game Developers Conference organizers have announced the eight winners of the Best in Play award program for exhibitors in the three-day GDC Play 2016 event, which allows emerging developers to show their games at GDC.

For the Best in Play award program, all GDC Play exhibitors were judged on their in-development or complete games by a panel of veteran GDC organizers. All Best in Play award winners (listed below) will receive 2 All Access Passes to the 2017 Game Developers Conference.

Winners for Best in Play will also receive special designations (think: booth badges) at GDC 2016, where their games will be playable by all GDC attendees. If you're a GDC All-Access Pass holder, you can directly contact all GDC Play exhibitors via the GDC Play Matchmaking Software.

All of these games will be available to play in the GDC Play onsite exhibit this year at GDC Play 2016. The GDC Play exhibit will be open Wednesday through Friday, March 16th-18th, and will occupy a prominent spot on the lower level of the North Hall of the Moscone Convention Center.
