On January 20th, 2018, we will host the third annual FIG Talks at MIT’s Stata Center in Cambridge, MA. FIG Talks is a platform for independent designers and developers to share and showcase with one another their learnings in order to foster community, teach valuable lessons, and start dynamic conversations in the independent game creator space about how and why we create games.
The event will feature three main tracks, Game Design, Game Development and Game Business. We strive for a wide mix of topics from all different sides of game creation — not just digital games but also tabletop, live action, and experimental game forms, since we believe that all game creation is valuable and can create engaging experiences.
This event is aimed at designers and developers, and anyone who are interested in getting started creating games of their own. We’ll be welcoming over 200+ game creators across many mediums to attend as well as give talks on a wide variety of topics surrounding game creation.
Tons of talks! Fantastic information from design, dev, and business perspectives. Great networking, and amazing food, including 2 meals:
