I’m certain you know that today would’ve been... the very first day of GDC 2020.
Like a dance immemorial, every year on this day millions of games industry professionals exchange tokens, make meetings and begin a sacred week of networking. However... this year the hallowed phrases such as “What have you been working on?” and “I’m getting hungry!” echo silently throughout the empty halls of The George R. Moscone Convention Center, San Francisco.
To all developers, publishers, students, organisers and little superstars dismayed by GDC’s cancellation - Crows Crows Crows has one message for you.
Together we are mostly united in missing the GDC experience. The glitz. The glamour. The thrill of the hunt to find a restaurant that will seat a group of 15 with no reservation. So we have created a virtual “garden of eden” where you can live the conference life through the safe, shimmering membrane of the internet. So without further ado…
CDC is a massively multiplayer online browser-based networking and conference experience with light roguelike elements. It’s like The Club.
You can “pick up” your COMPLIMENTARY ALL ACCESS PASS (VALUE: $2,499) immediately by clicking on this link and beginning your CDC adventure.
Not convinced? I can’t blame you. I too have ascended to the level of industry relevance where I no longer need to pump the grease, to visit every conference in the world, to constantly turn the crank of engagement.
However I really do think you should reconsider.
Here are 3 major ways in which CDC emulates and improves upon the core GDC experience.
Going to talks, talking about going to talks and not going to talks are the classic playstyles of every conference. CDC supports all of these from day one.
However we do respect our attendee’s time therefore each session is limited to one minute and one slide. We offer triple the speaking fees of GDC so all of our MEN* are taken care of.
*in order to give you the most authentic tech conference experience we have filled the majority of our speaking slots with very similar sounding MEN. MEN stands for Mediocre Egotistical Nerd. Not all of these MEN work in the games industry, but let me tell you they all have very loud opinions.
CDC is equipped to handle all of your meeting needs. Just check out what some of these CDC Attendees are saying!
CDC is hosted at The Moscrowne Centre at the very heart of Just Your Average Major Western Metropolis with excellent transport links and a perfect 3:1 Uber-Lyft ratio. Adjacent to CDC lies Moscrowne Park, which boasts multiple trees and a water feature. CDC will also offer a stunning show floor, a world class auditorium and a perfectly acceptable wrap up room.
CDC runs from March 16th to March 20th.
WAIT WAIT! One more thing: there will be ANOTHER email later this week, with something… unreal. Please make sure you read that one too, that'd be EPIC.
See you then!
