To encourage open sharing and talent nurturing, ARF has sponsored Taipei Game Developers Forum in the same way it has supported open source forums. Of all the game developer conferences held in Taiwan in recent years, TGDF, now in its 10th year and attracting over 1,000 participants, stands out by being an event that is fully funded by private communities. The diverse range of topics discussed at the forum included game development related design, art, programming, music/sound effect and project management, community building, commerce and future trend observation.
Due to the impact of Taiwan's level-3 pandemic alert in 2021, the forum had remained online. Close to 40 developers of various expertise from Taiwan and overseas were invited to interact with remote audience during a two-day agenda. With the previous year’s experience of taking the forum online, the host team and participants were in a position to improve the outcome of the event. In the future, even if the pandemic ends, the forum may continue its online format, reflecting the long term and even permanent change that the pandemic has been on every profession and industry, beyond just everyday living.
