July 19, 2006: The Texas Independent Game Conferenceis a new event here in Austin, in its first year, but with a great program and speaker lineup. Including me . . .
It's this weekend. Here's their website.
I'll be speaking Sunday at 11:30 in the morning on "Lessons from the Old School" . . . specifically, some of the ways in which digital game development is very like traditional small-publisher "paper" game operations, and how the indie developer can profit from the mistakes we've made over the years rather than repeating them.
It promises to be an interesting weekend, and registration's a bargain compared to the more established conferences . . . if you're interested in the digital side of the game business, and within a few hours' drive of Austin, come listen to Warren Spector and Greg Costikyan and, well, me.
