Bit of Alright Conference

Bit of Alright

Last weekend I, CWolf, went to World of Love‘s spiritual successor Bit of Alright indie games conference.

The conference was a great place to meet like minded people from across the indie games scene, listen to some very interesting talks and see some of the unreleased games in development. I met some very interesting people there, especially an artist and an ex-APB developer who I shared a few drinks with at the end of the day.

I found talks on ‘Paper prototyping’, ‘Indie(cent) Exposure’ and ‘Zombie Run’ the most interesting talks of the day. It has given me a lot to think about for Deadworld Studios.

All in all the day was a great experience and I’m looking forward to the next similar event! The conference is covered in much greater detail by RPS and Gamasutra.

Now… back to getting the next Mechadroids update out the door!

Why Move… Again?!... (read more)
