As part of the regular schedule, we’ll be re-posting descriptions for the Albany IGDA talks that occur at TVGS on the first Wednesday of every month.
This month’s speakers are Terence Tolman and John Ceceri III, and their talk is entitled TVGS Goes To GDC: “Slap Friends!” Pre-Mortem.
The talk will begin at 7:00 PM, but feel free to arrive around 6:00 and stay until 9:00 if you’d like to mingle before and after.
Two of our IGDA and TVGS members will be taking their game to GDC and will be presenting it during the alternative controller showcase and on stage at Experimental Gameplay Workshop!
The developers will discuss the ups and downs of creating SLAP FRIENDS, a dispute resolution simulator that uses plushy hat alternative hardware controllers!
