The 2018 Game Developer Conference is right around the corner, and the week of GDC is always an exciting time to gather, learn, and share a pint with new friends within the game industry. This year, Enhance will not only have a booth on the expo floor (come say hi), but we’ll also be co-coordinating the annual Indie Giving charity event with FGL and the official GDC organizers! It’s a great event in its 8th year that lets indie game developers roll up their sleeves for something other than locating a pesky bug. It’s all about giving back to a local organization in need.

What You Get
If you sign up for the Indie Giving package, which costs $349, you’ll get:
- 1 Indie Games Summit pass, which gets you access to many sessions and lectures, as well as access to the Expo hall.
- Charity event participation (March 18)
- Brunch beforehand at Delancey Street Restaurant
- Drinks and hor d’oeuvres at Bistro Boudin afterward
- Some awesome swag.
Indie Giving is supported by sponsors, so as financial backing continues to come in, we’re able to increase the value of this package from where it stands currently.
Moments From Past Indie Giving Events
The volunteer work is fulfilling in and of itself, but it’s not all work and no play. The occasional frisbee gets stuck in a tree, a bad programming joke or two is told, but this is also a great time to mingle with fellow game developers and industry experts. There’s no shortage of like-minded people to bounce ideas off of, have test your game, get advice from, or simply to have a beer afterward with.
Spreading The Love
In association with our volunteering, we will also be donating to the organization we end up working with. The remaining money from Indie Giving pass purchases will be donated to Charity: Water, a non-profit organization bringing clean and safe drinking water to people in developing countries.
We look forward to seeing you at GDC and Indie Giving!
