I’m giving a talk called “Game Dev for Everyone: Modern Interactive Fiction” at GaymerX 2016. This talk is aimed at people who want to make games, don’t know where to start, and want to try out interactive fiction. It will cover Twine, Inform 7, ChoiceScript, and Ren’Py, plus possibly another platform or two.
GaymerX is a LGBTQ-focused gaming convention in Santa Clara, CA, from September 30 to October 2, 2016. You don’t need to be LGBTQ to attend (they’re serious about “this is for everybody!”); however, there will be a lot of related content, and they’re very serious about their safe space and harassment policies.
My talk will be from 1 to 2 PM on Saturday. If you’re around, come say hi!
