GIC Success stories

Since we started our adventure with game development, we came across countless studios, game, audio, and graphics developers or just simple games maniacs that found their path to success. Some of them you may already know, some are to be met in the upcoming edition of GIC.

Whether your achievement is a business opportunity, mentoring, or somebody that shares your vision – we are glad that we are the place where you gain your goals.
