Dutch Courage is showcase for Dutch developers and friends of the Dutch.
It is traditionally organised on the evening before a big game conference (GDC, Gamescom, GameConnection). Developers, press and other interested people are invited to check out the newest games (prototypes, release candidates or finished products) while enjoying a beer in a friendly and relaxed atmosphere.
The rule is: play a game, get a beer. which means that all showcasers have a limited amount of drink tickets. If you want to get your hands on a free beer, check out their game. You might get lucky: playing both a cool game ánd enjoy a free drink.
