Game Developer’s Conference was held in San Francisco in March, and you could notice bigger-than-usual web presence there. Both Poki and Godot had their booths, while CrazyGames and Meta lurked around the halls.

The whole session revolved around GDC participants sharing their experiences: Erik from Poki, Noël from Meta, Adam from Godot (even though it was 4 AM for him!), Rafael from CrazyGames, and Björn from Defold, with others asking questions and adding to the discussion as well.

Overall the sentiment seems to be very positive, and we might expect even more web games next year, since companies like Discord and LinkedIn are currently investing a lot of their time and resources into web games. I could totally imagine their booths at GDC 2025 having some cool browser games for visitors to play while having fruitful conversations at the same time.
