Behind the headlines of GDC, a cautious sense of hope

This week on the Eurogamer Newscast, we digest the last seven days of headlines from GDC 2024 – a conference that was unsurprisingly coloured by the past 18 months of industry turmoil. Eurogamer’s Chris Tapsell was there, and joins us today to report back on what was being said on the ground.

From this side of the pond, we saw the widespread anger at mass layoffs and the scepticism surrounding AI. But what was the mood at GDC 2024 really like – and how did game developers there actually feel? Chris fills us in on what he heard – and why, at a conference filled with dozens of developers presenting their best work, the mood wasn’t exclusively doom and gloom.

Take a listen to hear Chris’ favourite moments from the show – plus renditions of a Mario power-up sound effect from him and Newscast regular Victoria Kennedy. Blup-blup-blup!
