Best in Play
Eight games from GDC Play will be designated 'Best in Play' by a panel of Gamasutra editors. Winners will be announced in February and special 'Best in Play' designations will be attached to honorees' tabletops on-site.
Ten GDC Play exhibitors will be selected to pitch their games to an opinionated panel of investors and publishers in front of a live audience. The pitch is followed by questions, advice, and feedback before the judges declare the day's "Best Pitch".
