What are you doing this Saturday (15 January 2011)? If you answered “Attending the Genghiscon indie video games panel… obviously!” then you already have a fantastic weekend in store for you. Otherwise, keep reading and update you plans!
What is Genghiscon? Here’s a description from their website:
GenghisCon is a student-priced convention, filled with games, activities, panels, discussions, and workshops covering science fiction, fantasy, roleplaying, board games, and more.
Given the high degree of overlap between indie video game developers and other types of geeks (I refer you to the Venn Diagram of Geekdoms), there will be a lot for game developers to love at Genghiscon. Plus, it’s only $25 for a weekend of education, fun, debate, and solidarity!
Onto the indie video games panel in particular…
Here are the details:
- Time/Date: 16:00 – 17:00, Saturday 15 January
- Location: Junior Common Room, St. George’s College, Mounts Bay Road, Crawley
And the list of panellists:
- Avril Cox (Reveri.es Virtual World)
- Nick Lowe (Let’s Make Games)
- Chris McCormick (PodSix Games)
- Brad Power (Rockethands)
- Scott Reismanis (ModDB, IndieDB, Desura)
Look at that line-up! There’s sure to be some thoughtful conversation, and you could be a part of it.
Ask Avril about developing a community-driven web-based role-playing game. Ask Chris about how to be hardcore indie. Ask Brad about his fish-smelling game. Ask Scott about running the world’s largest website dedicated to independent game development!
Thanks to Genghiscon for inviting us to help with the indie games panel.
