The Dice Summit drew the best of the best in the game industry. The conference staged by the Academy of Interactive Arts & Sciences at the Hard Rock Hotel in Las Vegas was where game developers and publishers networked, gave talks to their peers, partied like rock stars, made secret deals, and attended the Oscars of video games, the Dice Awards, which were hosted by home-grown video game celebrities Felicia Day and Freddie Wong.

We were there for the whole event, for the 17th year in a row. The industry was optimistic this year and talked about the theme, “The new golden age of gaming,” as a mantra that had already come true. Here’s our photos below, alongside some official AIAS photos. We’ve captioned the photos so you can get a snapshot of what happened at the event.
