Game Developer magazine's editors have launched the 2009 State Of Game Development purchasing survey, with an all-access GDC 2010 pass as incentive for completing the questions.

The survey covers topics such as company size, market sectors worked in and tools used, and should be filled out by any current professional game developer. Select results will be published in an upcoming issue of Game Developer magazine and made available in a Game Developer Research report..

In appreciation of the time and effort taken, once participants complete the survey, their name will be entered into a drawing to win one All-Access Conference Pass to Game Developers Conference in San Francisco in March 2010.

However, besides the name registration to win the prize, this survey is anonymous. None of the information presented will be associated with any individuals, with overarching trends being the overall point of the survey.

You can now access the 2009 State Of Game Development purchasing survey, which takes approximately 5-7 minutes to complete.
