Early Bird Tickets/Hotel Con Rates End Soon, Panel Submissions Extended!

We want to hear from you! – We are now accepting Panel and Speaker Submissions until July 15th!

Do you want to give a talk about your video game dev retrospective?
Have a skill you want to teach others like podcasting, branding or streaming?
Want to host a meetup for fellow artists/programmers/Dragon Age fans?
Or maybe you have experience, but don’t want to host the talk yourself.

GaymerX has you covered!
We’ve just extended our programming submissions until July 15th!

We especially want to hear from POC! Our Diversity Liaison, Tanya DePass, has some words to say on this matter.

I’m putting on my Diversity Liaison hat before I start waving at you for a moment of your time. GaymerX Year 4 is coming up this fall and programming suggestions are open until July 15th. Convention content comes from the community. We want and need more POC on panels that are NOT just about diversity.

We know there’s a great community of game makers, podcasters, cosplayers, artists, musicians and more who should submit programming items for GX4! There’s more to our stories than being a marginalized identity within another marginalized identity.

We love games, all facets of making them. So bring your knowledge to GX4 and let’s make this year better for representation across all programming and events September 30 – October 2nd.

Thank you, Tanya DePass

Donna Prior

Okay, all, this is super important!

Orca Con is an inclusive tabletop convention in Washington and the KICKSTARTER IS LIVE RIGHT NOW!! So make sure you back them so that you can check out this awesome event!!

David Gaider

Formerly BioWare’s lead Dragon Age writer and currently BeamDog working on Baldur’s Gate franchise. (Yes, the Baldur’s Gate) David now returns to us as our Grand Marshall!

Well, that’s the title we’re currently giving the guy who’s not only responsible for some of the best games writing the world’s ever seen through the Dragon Age series but also
a man who’s been to more GaymerX’s than some of our staff! (Lookin’ at you, Toni!!)

Mark Barlet

We’re extremely excited to be bringing Mark Barlet, founder of the AbleGamers Charity! AbleGamers have done a lot over the years to make gaming more accessible and
we’re super proud to have Mark joining us!

Brandon McGill

Brandon McGill, artist and creator, will be joining us this year offering
his incredible body painting talent to GaymerX fans!
Make sure you stop by to get a little, or a lot, of his surreal and vivid artistry on yourself!


If you went to the first GaymerX you might recall an awesome chiptune artist who whipped out a violin and started playing it during his set. Well that’s the one and only Aethernaut!
One of our long time favorite musicians, Aethernaut’s been so close to the family he’s
debuted songs at GaymerX and even did some tracks for Read Only Memories!
