While we’ll be unable to attend this year’s conference, we wanted to spread the word about Gameacon, a conference focused on independent game development the fans of the game’s they create, and more! This years’ even will be taking place at the end of this month, October 28th, 29th and 30th, at the Tropicana Casino in Atlantic City, NJ.
Gameacon is the only conference of its kind — one that combines the business-to-business networking and educational opportunities of the GDC with the entertainment and public feedback aspects of Magfest or Pax. And it all focuses exclusively on independent game developers from around the world. Our mission is to promote independent artists in game creation by providing a space for them to showcase their work, the opportunity to reach an audience who craves to see it, and a forum to learn from each other.
Sounds like a perfect combination right? If you’re interested in attending, tickets can be purchased online for a discount, or at the door.
Gameacon will also be premiering a Las Vegas conference in early September of next year.
Gameacon is now firmly on our watch list, and will likely join PAXEast and the BFIG as a regular convention stop for us on the East Coast.
