Confirmed Presentations & Games for GDC 2014

For 2014, San Francisco is the host of the Game Developers Conference, running from March 17th to 21st. It’s a big deal in the game world, as publishers and developers come together to share projects, ideas, and make connections.

Like we’ve seen before, Nintendo will be in attendance with the intention of promoting the eShop platforms to developers and publishers. Nintendo of America has confirmed a number of playable games at its booth and there will be a presentation at the Unity booth (#1402) on Thursday (March 20th) from 10:45-11:15PST. The presentation will be given by Business Development manager Dan Adelman, and will give a step-by-step look at the process of bringing a game to the eShop.

They’ll also be displaying the Nintendo Web Framework, using elements from the Mario vs. Donkey Kong series to highlight how easily the framework can be used. They’ll also focus on the free Unity Pro license available on the Wii U.

All of the playable games at the booth are on the Wii U and use Unity:

–          Armillo (Fuzzy Wuzzy Games)

–          Ballpoint Universe: Infinite (Arachnid Games)

–          Cubemen 2 (Nnooo)

–          Ittle Dew (Ludosity AB)

–          Monkey Pirates (Henchmen Studio)

–          Nihilumbra (BeautiFun Games)

–          Stick It To The Man (Zoink & Ripstone)

–          Teslagrad (Rain Games)

–          Wooden Sen’SeY (Neko Entertaiment)

Steve Singer, Nintendo of America’s Licensing VP, has said that at GDC this year, Nintendo wants “to demonstrate to developers how easy it is for them to bring their creative ideas to Nintendo systems. Nintendo offers wide-ranging support for indie developers, whether they want to use NWF, Unity, or their own proprietary code.”

Hopefully, Nintendo’s efforts here will pay off by attracting more developers to the Wii U and 3DS gaming platforms.

Dave will tell you that he likes to play video games, this is in fact a lie. What he really likes to do is buy games, and leaving them sitting unopened on his shelf. He is a monster.
