Want to get featured on GAAM?! Fill out the form below if you’d like GAAM to feature you all over our social media (yup, that includes GAAM Live)! We’re always looking for livestreamers, events, artists, musicians, game developers/designers, models, cosplayers, and anything else video game related to showcase, so send us what you got, and let’s tell people about how awesome you are!
GAAM might actually put something together for vendors and artists…whaaaaaaaa?! Don’t get crazy, this won’t be a con. It’ll be a GAAM Nerd Market (or something) that we’re hoping to launch in the next few months. You pay for space, you sell your stuff to people who are there just to buy stuff. What a concept!
But, before we finalize this, we wanna see if people even wanna do this. So sign up (or share this with somebody else that would want to set up and sell stuff!), and if we do it, you’ll be first to be notified on space availability at the GAAM Market!

Do you have feedback on what you liked or what could be changed to make future Retro GAAM Nights better? We want to hear it! Let us know below, and thank you for your time.

We’ve done a lot of events, and The Museum is our favorite venue by far. It’s elegant, unique, and most importantly, run by good people. They take pride in working with non-profits. They enjoy seeing smiles on the faces of kids during proms. Their hearts swell with each “I do” that’s whispered.
It’s easy to find a venue. It’s hard to find a great venue. And it’s almost impossible to find a great venue, being run by people you can trust. That’s why we return to The Museum every year, and we’re proud to have them as a sponsor.
Yelp reviews are serious business. We didn’t realize just how many people use those things until we met our Yelp Community Manager, and started using it when we were looking for places to eat and things to do. Haven’t had a bad meal since then, and have made a bad pick of where to go at night when we’re out of town.
Thank you, mighty Yelp reviewers. You make this country great (and honest). Plus you help us find awesome burgers and drinks.
You can find members of the GAAM Fam at Bento pretty much any day of the week. It’s THAT good. Dat Mongolian Beef Noodle Bowl is LEGIT. The Sushi is freeeeeeeesh. And we just flat out like the people there. We like them so much, we normally hold our cosplay auditions there! 🙂
No lie, when we first started going to Bento, we heard about how the staff in the back all have Justice League code names for each other, and we were like, “We need to work with these guys!” hahaha.
Thank you, Bento, for the food, the support, and the cosplay love!
Mochi has been a long time of supporter of GAAM. Maybe it’s because we spend about the same amount on eating frozen yogurt every year. Ooooor maybe it’s because they really are about games, art, and music. Actually, it’s probably that, because you can see people from the Mochi and Bento teams on the dance floor at GAAM every time. And damn, they can dance. 😉
Check them out at their Towncenter location if you’re in Jacksonville, or in Orlando…or Tallahasee…or Gainesville…you get the idea.

I make perler bead sprites of just about everything; anime characters, classic video game sprites, original pixelations, and even sprites I find online. I started making bead sprite art back in 2011 and my love for it just keeps growing with every new sprite I make.
BROBOT BEAT DOWN is what you’ve really wanted ever since you were a wee babe. It’s Mad Max meets Robot Jox meets Bloodsport with a healthy helping of ridiculous weapons and excessive explosions.
This is finally the robot fighting game you’ve been waiting for.
The 2016 E3 College Game Competition winner, players can all agree that this VR mech game is amazing, and these guys are the future of the gaming industry!
A Youtuber, a live streamer, model, gamer, and an award-winning costumer, all wrapped up into one. Danica has many tricks up her sleeve. Anywhere from latex prosthetics, sewing, and make up, this lady’s arsenal of talents never runs thin. When she’s not running around town with her corgi looking like a goofball, she’s off live streaming video games on Twitch, working on her weekly YouTube channel, or sharing the joy and love of cosplay with others. Danica encourages people to crack open their shells and express their inner nerd via cosplay. With images that look as if you’ve pressed pause on your game, movie, or what have you, Danica has several publications in Geek Fantasy Magazine, The Escapist, and David Love Photography’s Cosplay Composition book. As well as worked with Versus Evil for their video game Banner Saga.
