Organizers of the 2013 Game Developers Conference are announcing the eight winners of its new award program - Best in Play - for exhibitors in the three-day GDC Play 2013 event, which allows emerging developers to show their games in a specially designed kiosk.
The winners, picked from more than 70 exhibitors currently at GDC Play, include the beautifully landscaped, mech-based first-person shooter Hawken by Meteor Entertainment for PC and the extremely physical and collaborative micro challenge game
Spin the Bottle by KnapNok Games for Wii U.
For the new Best in Play award program, all GDC Play exhibitors were judged on their in-development or complete games by a panel of veteran GDC organizers and Gamasutra editors. All Best in Play winners receive two All Access Passes to the 2014 Game Developers Conference.
Winners for Best in Play will also receive special designations for their kiosks at GDC 2013, where their games will be playable by all GDC attendees. GDC All-Access Pass holders can contact all GDC Play exhibitors via the currently operating GDC Play Matchmaking Software.
