The Philippine Game Festival 2014 was a game development convention organized by the Game Developers Association of the Philippines (GDAP) and was held from October 3 to 4, 2014 at the SMX Convention Center in the City of Pasay, Philippines. The event's theme was "Live to Play". The event series was rebranded from a student-centric game development event into a more mainstream gaming convention.

It was preceded by the 2013 event and was followed by the 2015 event.

The event should not be confused with the Pinoy Gaming Festival 2014, an esports-centric event that was also held in the same month.

Former Senator Paulo Benigno "Bam" Aquino was one of the speakers in the event.
