Netherlands Lounge @GDC 2023
During GDC 2023 we will be hosting The Netherlands lounge: a private meeting area for the Dutch Games Industry. Feel free to drop by to have a chat with one of the many great Dutch game developers.
Join the conversation at The Netherlands lounge, just a short walk away from Moscone Center!
The Netherlands is a small country, but when it comes to game development, its influence is a lot bigger than you’d imagine. Two Sony Worldwide Studios are based in The Netherlands: Guerrilla Games and Nixxes. Guerrilla is known for their smash hit Horizon Forbidden West and has been nominated three times for the Game Developer Choice Awards. Nixxes left its mark by co-developing blockbuster franchises like Tomb Raider.
The Dutch industry has more to offer than AAA though! Sokpop Collective received an Independent Games Festival nomination with their hit Stacklands. Plus, the industry comes knocking on Dutch doors seeking the best in tech. Abstraction, for instance, has helped develop Halo, Mass Effect Legendary Edition and the Funcom Dune game.
Derk de Geus, Chairman of the DGA says: “One of the focus points for the DGA is the international presence of the Dutch game industry. As one of the biggest developer shows in the world, GDC is the prime candidate for these activities. With The Netherlands lounge we aim to showcase the creativity and strength of the Dutch game industry to potential business partners.”
