In response to Trump’s Immigration Ban, Devolver Digital has extended an open hand to developers that have been affected. The studio is setting up space at the upcoming Game Developers Conference so that affected games still have a presence on the show floor.
Devolver Digital will be setting up PCs and HTC Vive sets in the nearby offsite location used by the studio during the conference. The location, dubbed Devolver Underground during GDC, will be open to press and attendees from Monday, February 27 through Wednesday, March 1.
Anyone interested in submitting their demo should email [email protected] and include the following information:
• Studio Name / Developer Name
• Short description of the game
• Country of origin
• Link to video of the game if available
Space is limited so submissions should be sent as soon as possible before the February 20 deadline. Preference will be given to developers that were already set to travel to GDC and were forced to cancel their plans due to Trump’s executive order.
“One of my favorite things about games is that they are truly global in nature, transcending borders and cultural differences more seamlessly than other art forms, and working with different people from all over the world with wildly varying backgrounds has been a huge part of Devolver’s success and of our personal enjoyment of what we do,” said Mike Wilson, co-founder of Devolver Digital. “We are happy to have the opportunity to help create a bridge in some small way for some of the talented developers who will unfortunately be unable to attend this year’s GDC.”
Devolver Underground will be located in the basement level of 44 Tehama Street, San Francisco, CA 94105.
