GDEX is the largest conglomerate of game developers in the Midwest. Each year independent, student, and hobbyist have the opportunity to show off their games in a professional manner. With each year of thousands in attendance and growing GDEX has become a yearly goal for developers in the Midwest to get their games to a state they are proud of to showcase to everyone.
I have been in attendance for GDEX (formerly OGDE – The Ohio Game Developers Conference) since 2012. The first event is what catapulted me into the game development community and eventually what led me to become the organizer for IGDA Cincinnati. Each year I have been more and more involved. I have been an attendee, to an exhibitor for five years, speaker, sponsor and now Board Member.
