Shackers can sign up at, where you can select which language you prefer to enjoy the event in. This is a huge deal for a number of developers who find it very difficult to travel to the United States or Europe for conventions. Rami Ismail has been fighting for international developers for years, and this event will be a huge step up for a lot of talented people across the globe. He chatted with us last year after he received the 2018 GDC Ambassador Award about the struggles of international developers.

It is exciting to see a brand new games conference with such a clear and positive vision. Be sure to follow on Twitter, and keep it locked on Shacknews for more information leading up to June 2019.
