This month I am pleased to announce that we have the CEO of One More Story Games, Jean Leggett, coming from Toronto to talk to us about starting and running an indie games studio. Jean is also a professional speaker, comedian, and educator. At the moment she is working on a digital game version of Charlaine Harris' bestselling Lily Bard novel series on her own games engine, Story Stylus, and she has shipped several other games in the past (Danielle's Inferno, Hard Vaccuum Lullaby, and more). I'm very excited to learn from her and for her to share her knowledge with all of you.

 

After Jean's talk there will be a mixer. As always BioWare is sponsoring us, and Beercade is very genously giving us space and free tokens. If you would like a drink courtesy of BioWare please register - spots are limited and are meant to be for developers and students only! We reserve the right to refuse drinks to anyone engaging in bad behaviour. Please drink responsibly! We are all on this crazy game dev journey together and we should take care of ourselves and each other.

 

Also - the event is JULY 9th not June. I had June in the title previously. Sorry! It's totally my bad.
