ALT.CTRL.GDC needs your one-of-a-kind alternative controller games!
Game Developers Conference 2015 has opened a call for submissions to ALT.CTRL.GDC — an on-site special exhibit focusing on unique control methods for playing games.

The much-lauded ALT.CTRL.GDC returns to GDC from 4-6 March. The exhibit is open for submissions until 23 December for indie-centric one-of-a-kind game peripherals, contraptions, and novelties which enhance game experiences and challenge traditional forms of input.

Teams for each chosen submission will be asked to showcase their games to GDC attendees at the ALT.CTRL.GDC exhibit area on the expo show floor. They'll also receive a pair of All-Access Passes and a pair of Expo Passes, for a total of four free passes to GDC 2015. In exchange for the passes and free exhibit space, teams will be responsible for their own travel and the delivery of their exhibit submission to GDC in San Francisco.

Those interested in participating in ALT.CTRL.GDC should fill out this online form in its entirety. Students and professionals are eligible to submit. Any questions about the form or the exhibit should be directed to ALT.CTRL.GDC's organizer, John Polson. Learn more at
