Philipp WeberQuest Designer @ CD Projekt Red
“I had a great time at the Tallinn Game Dev Days 2017. It was a very well organized event and a great place to meet people and listen to interesting presentations.”
Mika PätiäläBusiness Development Director @ Unity Technologies
"Over the past few years GameDevDays has grown from a smaller gathering of regional developers into a great international event; 5/5 in my book!"
Garrett WeinzierlCEO @ PlayWin
"GameDev Days is unique in that indie developers and the CEOs of companies with hundreds of millions of downloads have the opportunity to speak together as equals. The opportunity for a fresh insight is invaluable in the dispersion of information within the industry."
Roman GoroshkinPR & Events Manager Russia and CEE @ Epic Games
"Nice and cozy gig. Was happy to see some old friends. Was great to make some new ones. Tallinn is an amazing city. Huge and warm thanks to Creative Mobile for such a definitely cute conference."
Dmytro ZhovtobryukhGame Producer & PR manager @ Snowhound
“Thanks to its unique geographic location, GDD Tallinn acts as a bridge between Russian-speaking and European gamedev communities. After White Nights' move from Helsinki to Prague, GameDevDays seems to be playing the central and key role in bringing together developers from Baltic and Nordic countries and Russia. Though not very big yet, the event was nonetheless very welcoming and well organized and offered its attendees some really interesting talks and off-program activities.”
Ressa SchwarzwaldAudio producer @ TinyBuild
“Super cozy conference in a spa hotel. Great technical equipment and organization, speakers from famous teams, comfortable business lounge with soft sofas to sleep between the keynotes—I was truly impressed.”
Fedor Bonch-OsmolovskiyManaging Partner @ Levsha localization studio
“Very nice conference to visit, it exceeded my expectations business-wise. Quick flight from Moscow, comfortable venue and a great party—I'll definitely consider visiting it in future.”
