GDC boss Megan Scavio's admitted that the global recession will cast a shadow over this week's GDC, but that game developers are a creative lot that thrive on a crisis.

"People are finding ways to make money with smaller budgets, and that takes creativity," Scavio told the AP.

"The thing about game developers is that they are a resilient bunch. What they do is find their way through this downturn."

The exec said she expects attendance for this year's show to be slightly down this year from last year's 18,000 people thanks to cost-cutting, and also expects fewer, more informal parties.

"It's kind of like let's celebrate, but do it quietly," she added.
