We're pleased to announce our four presenters:
Stride & Prejudice, Presented by Carla Fisher
Stride & Prejudice is an endless runner where the platforms are formed from the text of Jane Austen’s Pride and Prejudice. Players control a pixel-art Lizzy Bennet as she jumps across the text. The game also features controls to adjust the scrolling speed to the player’s preference and three color settings, similar to eReading devices. It was designed by Dr. Carla Fisher, a game designer specializing in educational games for kids, and published by her studio, No Crusts Interactive.
FreshBiz, Presented by Patty Sherin
FreshBiz is a board game and series of game-based workshops described as "Monopoly meets The Game of Life." FreshBiz teaches business and life lessons through entrepreneurial thinking and exercises that interact with various life challenges. The game was created in Israel and has been taught to thousands of kids and adults in countries from China to Mexico, Russia to Spain. Patty has been a facilitator with FreshBiz since March 2013 and leads workshops in New York City.
Rhymes with Friends, Presented by Brian Tedesco
Rhymes with Friends is a poetic game designed to inspire and challenge users. In Rhymes with Friends, players are given three random words to use within the context of a unique poem or rhyme, and then encouraged to let their imaginations run wild. Features include single player, "The Poetry Slam" which allows players to create a multi-player game based on those three random words, social media integration, and leaderboards. The game, available in the Apple App Store, will be presented by Brian Tedesco, the game designer and the co-founder of Funky Gecko Design.
Digital Training Simulation, Presented by Richard Carey

Richard will be presenting a brief case study of a training simulation and motivational tournament he designed and developed with Muzzy Lane Software for Latin America's leading specialty retailer and financial iservices company.
