The Game Developers' Association of Australia is excited to announce the GCAP 2018 Student Showcase! The GCAP Student Showcase has run for the past three years, and is a chance for game development students all around Australia to show off what they've been working on to the broader game development community. Six teams will have the opportunity to show their game off at GCAP 2018 with two free GCAP passes each.
We are looking for games that impress, inspire and beguile; games that innovate, extend and surprise. Games that are polished and achievable while still showing us something interesting and new.
There are 6 slots available, and each successful team will receive 2 free full access passes to GCAP to exhibit their game, learn, and network. Successful teams will be expected to exhibit their game during the event, and will be provided a table -- computers and equipment must be provided by the team. Interstate teams will also be provided with a $250 AUD travel stipend.
