GDC 2017 Recap


We took Riverbond on tour for our annual trip to the Game Developers Conference. Here’s a short recap of our showcases at events in San Francisco.


The Media Indie Exchange

On Monday night, we presented Riverbond to The MIX to media and industry with the Up North Indies gang. It was great to see some familiar faces and catch up on what everyone’s been up to.

It was also a blast to showcase among some stunning games, and props to The MIX organizers for curating the event.



OMDC Showcase @ GDC Play

In case you missed it, Riverbond was awarded Best In Play at GDC this year and we had the opportunity to show off some local co-op action at the OMDC booth.

We even had IGN even stopped by for an interview. Aptly titled ‘What is Riverbond?’, you can check out their coverage here.



Canada 150 Showcase @ GDC

This year is Canada’s 150th birthday, and we showcased Riverbond at the GDC Play Canada booth. It was fun to take players through a little adventure and some lucky folks even walked away with a Riverbond tee.



Channeling the Force

After all that running around, it was great to drop by ILM to geek out for a bit by the Yoda fountain. As always, we’re looking forward to seeing friends old and new at next year’s GDC!
