After much ado, GDC’s delayed Australian release will be in Melbourne.
When: Tuesday 10 April 6:00pm onwards
Where: The Workers Club (http://maps NULL.google NULL.com NULL.au/maps?q=The+Workers+Club,+Brunswick+Street,+Fitzroy,+Victoria&hl=en&sll=-25 NULL.335448,135 NULL.745076&sspn=61 NULL.878284,79 NULL.013672&oq=the+workers+club&hq=The+Workers+Club,+Brunswick+Street,+Fitzroy,+Victoria&t=m&z=15), cnr Brunswick and Gertrude Streets, Fitzroy
Despite being a touch out of the CBD it’s very easy to get to…
86 tram stops right outside the door, 96 tram stops on Nicholson st, 112 stops right outside the door.
It’s a 10 minute walk from Parliament station. It also as good afterhours parking on Gertrude/Brunswick street.
What: Along with the usual networking, drinking and mingling we’ll get the GDC goss from;
Tom Killen: It was Agent Tom’s second GDC and he’ll give the low down on the Intrinsic and Extrinsic Player Motivation Talk (http://schedule NULL.gdconf NULL.com/session/6619/Intrinsic_and_Extrinsic_Player_Motivation%3A_Implications_for_Design_and_Player_Retention)
Matt F Ditton: Matt reckons The Game-Dev Start-Up talk (http://schedule NULL.gdconf NULL.com/session/6592/The_Game_Dev_Start-Up_2012%3A_Issues_and_Practical_Answers_for_the_Rookie_Studio) was worth the price of admission in itself, so will share the key points from this talk
Katie Williams: Katie had trouble tearing herself away from the parties, networking, meta-games, IGF expo and GDC Play to actually attend talks, so that will be her main focus.
Brad Giblin: As the main man for Film Victoria at GDC, Brad will wax lyrical about networking and handleboxes.
Harry Lee: While I’m sure meta-games will rate a mention, Harry will give the CA (Conference Associate) perspective, staying at indie hostels, and what happens when you try to illegally sneak into parties.
No doubt they’ll all be showing off the wonderful thing that is party networking, and hope you can make it along to live (or relive, if you made it this year) vicariously through their experiences.
Let us know if you’re coming along via the usual facebook event (https://www NULL.facebook NULL.com/events/365672066806786/).
