September Speakers Social

Saturday, September 21, 2013
6:30pm - 8:30pm

at DMG HQ @ 32 Lisgar Street

Speakers

  • Tanya Kan will present Double Blind, a multiplayer action tag game inspired by Greek mythologies and designed for the Oculus Rift VR headset. Tanya was the art lead for Double Blind during August’s Indiecade/Oculus VR Jam. Learn more about her background, which includes an academic thesis on EVE Online, writing about experimental indie games, creating 3D real-time spaces during and after her postgrad Game Arts Programme at Seneca, training animators in UDK at a studio in Hong Kong, and a new game in the works!
  • Megan Patterson is a freelance tech, culture, and video game writer. She is also one of the co-founders and science and technology (and games!) editor at PaperDroids.com, a feminist site about geek culture. She is a lifelong gamer and super stoked to be learning how to make her first game.
  • Christine Kim will preview her upcoming work with Vector Festival 2014, including FemPOP, the arcade she is curating in February – and maybe a game jam announcement!
