Fan Art is something incredible that has grown over decades from a rare breed of contemporary art into a full fledged genre of multimedia content which some companies are doing well to openly embrace. Fan Art is typically created for the thanks and love towards a franchise or product / brand that is very beloved. For example, when Devolver Digital published Hotline Miami it inspired a great amount of Hotline Miami-Fan Art and the community for this type of work done out of love has just grown and grown.
Devolver Digital has decided to recognize this achievement of the video games community to maintain the right to Fan Art by hosting the first of its kind GDC Fan Art Gallery at this year’s GDC 2014. Game Developers Conference is a yearly industry trade event where professionals in the video games business attend panels on specific game-dev topics as well as connect with each other in a peer environment. In recent years Games Press / Media have been increasingly present at the GDC events and game publishers have increased their use of the event as a launchpad for major announcements regarding top franchises and / or important investments.
If you’re one of the thousands attending the Game Developers Conference 2014 be sure to stop by, the address is below. The good news is you can probably get in without a GDC badge if you live near the area and are really into gaming, though it wouldn’t hurt to have one either.
- Book Club
- 543 Howard St.
- Lower Level, Main Gallery
- “Open to all GDC badge holders
and gamers of discerning tastes”
- Wed., March 19 through Fri., March 21
- 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
Below are examples of some of the Fan Art gamers can expect to see there.
