2013 Game Developers Conference organizers are announcing the first of a series of new, interactive onsite events, 'Class of GDC: Photo Playset,' created in a renewed partnership with production group iam8bit.

In its own area on the Lower Lobby of the North Hall, iam8bit will offer GDC attendees from March 25-29 a free photo session with optional, "questionable fashion and laser backdrops" to personalize their photos with friends and colleagues.

As the official event description explains: "GDC is kinda like a high school reunion. Every year, the game industry gathers in San Francisco to hug old pals... and make some new ones.

It's the place to learn and share (and drink) the many fruits of our creative business, under one gigantic roof. So it only makes sense to immortalize the occasion - especially because everyone always needs a new Facebook profile pic.

Presenting the "CLASS OF GDC: Photo Playset," where attendees are welcomed into an elaborate snapshot experience, harkening back to those days of bad dos, questionable fashion and laser backdrops. But hold up - this isn't JUST some funny thing you did at a party once...

A hair & makeup artist will be on hand to help you achieve that perfect look, you'll get to sift through a random assortment of ugly sweaters and hideous dresses, and a well-educated photographer will earn back their student loans while you awkwardly smile."


Past iam8bit projects at Game Developers Conference include GDC 2012's 'Super Magnetic Game-O-Matic,' where attendees rearranged random words to create game ideas and artists later sketched their interpretations of those ideas. And GDC 2011 saw almost 6,000 attendees place pixels on a 20x8-foot pop portrait in 'Painting with Pixels.'

'Class of GDC: Photo Playset' is the first of several additional onsite attractions for the 2013 Game Developers Conference, taking place March 25-29 at the Moscone Center in San Francisco, with more to be announced soon. The deadline for discounted Early Bird passes to GDC 2013 is February 13th.
