The CHEGheads are heading to San Francisco for the annual Game Developers Conference (GDC), the world’s largest professionals-only game industry event. The conference, which attracts more than 17,000 attendees, is a forum for industry professionals to exchange ideas on the future of electronic gaming. This is a special opportunity to meet with game designers, producers, programmers, and others who are the creative force behind games currently in the ICHEG collection and others we will collect in the future.
We are looking forward to several GDC activities, too. Legendary game designer Sid Meier, creator of Sid Meier’s Civilization and an inductee into the Academy of Interactive Arts and Sciences’ Hall of Fame, is delivering the keynote address, “The Psychology of Game Design (Everything You Know Is Wrong).” John Carmack, co-founder of id Software, is being honored with a Lifetime Achievement Award at the 10th Annual Game Developers Choice Awards for his groundbreaking work on titles such as Wolfenstein 3D, Doom, and Quake. And we can’t wait to hit GDC’s Expo Floor to see the latest in game innovations!
The CHEGheads will keep you up to date on what’s going on at GDC via ICHEG posts on Twitter—follow us at http://twitter.com/icheg—and next week we’ll share some of our post-conference impressions on this blog.
