Join us as we explore the depth and breadth of the digital game ecosystem in the Tech Valley and opportunities for creative and technical professionals and entrepreneurs.

Learn about the companies included in this ecosystem, what they do and who they work with and how. Dig a little deeper into the growth and development of one successful business. Then drill down a little more into a targeted discussion of your choice. Finish your day with a Networking Reception complete with opportunities to talk with representatives of game design companies and a TedX-style presentation on “The Intersection of Digital and Media Art.” Here’s our agenda:

Mapping the Tech Valley Digital Games Cluster – a panel of representatives from each game design or related company with each sharing information on the company’s mission and place in the ecosystems, as well as the type of employee and freelancers their company works with and the skills those individuals need.

Starting, Growing, Pivoting and Still Growing a Business in Digital Games, featuring Brian Corrigan of Mad Glory

Dig Down Discussions — Breakouts for Creative, Technology and Entrepreneur

Networking Mixer with workshop attendees and members of the Upstate Alliance for a Creative Economy, with information tables for the digital games businesses and sponsoring organizations

CoGTalk — The Intersection of Digital and Media Arts featuring NYS Council on the Arts Program Director for Electronic Media & Film|Visual Arts Karen Helmerson

This program is free, but space is limited. Reserve your place at the event by registering at Eventbrite (all proceeds goes to the Extra Life charity)! The donations made to reserve a space will benefit the Children’s Hospital at Albany Medical Center through Extra Life, which unites thousands of digital game players around the world in 24-hour fundraising and gaming marathons to support Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals.

Let’s Get Together and Make Games: Haunted Edition (October 28th, 2015)

Have a game project you’re working on, or even just an idea for a game you’d like to create? This is a great time to meet up with other people and tell them what your project is about, get some feedback from fellow game makers, and discuss how much progress has been made on your project. Game projects in any state of completion are welcome, so feel free to bring a laptop along and take advantage of the opportunity to improve your game while receiving help and guidance from experienced mentors.

Additionally, this meeting will include an update on our community activities, and a chance for interested members to discuss how much progress has been made on various TVGS initiatives and share ideas for what other types of events and workshops you’d like to see us host in the future.

For reference, you can view the current list of suggestions and group initiatives via the TVGS Trello board, located at http://tasks.techvalleygamespace.com
