How can I demo my game at DLC13?
You can't this year, we're packed with great demos right now. You should still come and talk about your work with some fellow developers and designers.
As a game developer and/or designer, what should I expect to get out of this event?
You can expect to meet some new game devs and designers, catch up with ones you already know, and hopefully learn something new about your industry.
As a gamer, what should I expect to get out of this event?
You can expect to learn a lot about what goes into making games while having an opportunity to meet the people that actually make them. You can also expect a chance to give feedback to developers that are brave enough to ask for it.
What's this gaming tournament all about?
We're going to have some great giveaways for you at DLC13, so to make the process a bit more engaging we thought we'd have you compete for them. No, this is not an e-sports League of Legends throwdown. It will be much more relaxed and "friendly". More on this as we get closer to the date. The giveaways to date include (PS3 GTAV Bundle, Wii U Zelda Wind Waker HD Bundle, Gunnary Optics glasses, Ouyas, more to come...)
Can I sponsor DLC13?
Yes! Just send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org and we'll work out the details.
Is there any other reason I should come?
Of course! But the main reason is that we expect there to be a DLC14, DLC15, etc. and this is your chance to attend our innagural event to help us make sure we keep evolving the DLC series into something that you love attending year after year. We hope to see you there!
