What is GDLX?
Game Dev London (GDL) is a community organisation that aims to connect game developers not just in London but around the world and we host various events throughout the year to support this goal. One of these events is GDLX, a showcase for indie games and their creators.
The event also includes a series of talks and panel discussions about game development, providing a platform for developers to share their knowledge and experiences.
#GDLX23 is the latest edition of this event, and it promises to be an exciting and informative experience for attendees. The event will take place on March 29th at 26 Leake Street, London.
GDLX 2023 will feature a variety of indie games, which will be available to play, giving attendees the opportunity to discover new and exciting games, and learn more about the developers behind them.
Alongside talks and panel discussions, the event will also feature dedicated networking spaces and an industry after-party, giving attendees the opportunity to meet new people, share ideas, and potentially form collaborations for future game development projects. With a diverse range of attendees from different backgrounds, GDLX 2023 is the perfect event for anyone interested in the game development industry to network and learn from others in the field.

Game Dev London is dedicated to supporting the UK indie development scene and as part of this, we have announced the "Golden Ticket" showcase, a series of games from university students and even entrants from our Global Game Jam 2023 jam site!
Sleep Swimmer is a cosy narrative-driven game about a young girl named Aria who escapes her brutal and overstimulating world to help an underwater town full of salamander people create aquatic tunes while solving a big mystery that connects her life to the lives of the residents of Salamanderville. At its core, Sleep Swimmer is about using music and mindfulness techniques to overcome anxiety!
In Cyber Shift you're an alien scavenger that teleports between dimensions using a special item. You can collect items, kill enemies and race with the best time to beat your friends on the leaderboard! Cyber Shift was a game made by students in a UWL x Payload Studios Game Jam.
In Shared Roots: The Wisdom of the Stones, the player helps a young woman seeking to lay down roots in a new land confront the challenges ahead. At the Rollright stones, a six-thousand year-old stone circle in the English Midlands, a friendly local woman shows our traveller to tune into the wisdom of her ancestors by connecting to the ancient stones. To access this wisdom, she must solve a series of puzzles set by the stones. Through the game, the player learns more about our heroine's struggle

We will be giving devs at GDLX the opportunity to discuss their game/s, build up their game budget and discover how MLC can help reduce costs through co-development partnerships. These personalised estimates will be based on resources for animation, 3D production (rigging, modelling etc), character design, key art, trailers and more.
Informative talks from some of the best and brightest in the games industry, and panels from a diverse range of speakers, covering important game dev topics from programming, to game audio, to setting up your own studio, and beyond!
We will be showcasing the best of the next generation of indie games from the indie community. Check out games from the members of our Discord and the wider community, and be inspired to make your own!
