The event will take place in late June and will feature over thirty speakers. The games conference will be live streamed in eight of the most popular languages in the world and everything will be free thanks to their sponsors.

Please help us make @gamedevworld the largest it can be, and help us break down the enormous invisible border of language. Sign up at https://t.co/ACxXxywSll and retweet the tweets from the @gamedevworld account.— Rami Ismail (@tha_rami) January 25, 2019
Shackers can sign up at gamedev.world, 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 gamedev.world on Twitter, and keep it locked on Shacknews for more information leading up to June 2019.
