Google will be at GDC on March 25 giving a “sneak peak” at the new “game gadgets” currently in development for iGoogle using OpenSocial.

The company will also be on hand to demo the new iGoogle homepage.

Here’s the rundown:

Please join us on the night of March 25th as we give you an exclusive sneak peak at our new collection of gaming themes for iGoogle, Google’s personalized homepage. We will be creating an interactive experience that will bring the gaming industry’s most iconic characters to life and allow you to ride through their adventures. You’ll hear from some of the game publishers involved in the project and Google’s VP of Search Products and User Experience, Marissa Mayer. As an added bonus, you can see an early preview of a few of the game gadgets that developers are building for iGoogle using OpenSocial. It’s an event you won’t want to miss.
