EGD'S FREE ANNUAL CONVENTION

Waffle Games is the EGD's large, annual convention that we hold each year. This convention is a collaborative effort to redefine what it means to be involved in games and their communities. We fight for affordable game development education, the legitimization of esports on college campuses, and the recognition of games as an art form.

Now more than ever, it's imperative we come together and support our communities and what makes them great. This year, we will be collecting donations to help support our membership program!
