I’m planning to head down to GDC later this year, to meet up with other game developers, from around Canada, and the world. It’s pretty exciting. I’m definitely looking forward to the Independent Game Festival, and really interested in seeing how the awards work out for all the finalists.
So, in case you don’t know what the GDC is.. it’s the Game Developers Conference that is held in San Fransisco, USA. It’s basically a place to meetup with game developers from around the world, talk, hang out, learn, and see what everyone is up to, and what new projects people are programming, designing, and composing. I’ve never been to it before, but I know a fair amount of the developers who are going (including a few locally from Winnipeg).
Anyone else planning on attending?
Oh, also! In case you haven’t heard… You know the Winnitron 1000 that I and a handful of other game dev’s from Winnipeg created? Well, turns out that a lot of people like the idea, so we recently sent the software for the Winnitron 1000 off to Vlambeer in the Netherlands, and the Winnitron now has a new friend. Meet Winnitron NL! Exciting stuff! Looks like there may be a bunch more popping up in the future around the globe as well
