The doors have closed on GDC 2024, and the W4 Games team is still buzzing from the incredible energy at the Godot Pavilion! This year, we were proud to organize, sponsor, and co-exhibit in the largest Godot presence ever seen at the conference.

A Welcoming Hub for the Open-Source Community

We pulled out all the stops, creating a spacious and inviting booth that became a central meeting point for the Godot community. From open to close, the space was packed with attendees eager to explore the exciting world of open-source game development. Attendees included not only industry veterans but also inspiring newcomers, like the talented game design class from Balboa High School, whose visit was even featured in the news!

A Showcase of Innovation

The booth wasn't just about socializing; it was a vibrant showcase of innovation. Attendees had the chance to go hands-on with a thrilling lineup of indie games built with Godot. They also explored the cutting-edge products from our co-exhibitors, which generated a ton of excitement.

Co-Exhibitor Success Stories

Here are some highlights from our co-exhibitors that showcase the power of the Godot community:
