What is your interest in video game creation?

I'm a self-taught Indie developer who is always looking to learn from others. I've always wanted to make games, and thanks to the tools becoming more affordable and accessible, I've been able to start making games and VR experiences on my own. I'm hoping to meet interesting people to exchange ideas with.

What do you hope to get out of VGMU!? Just curious about video games and want to learn more, discover how to create games, find opportunities to enter the game business, or network with people in the video games business, etc.?

All of the above. I'm really interested in gaining knowledge about more efficient ways to do stuff (asset creation, workflows, etc), but everything described in the question is appropriate.

What kinds of topics, issues and presentations would you like to hear about?

I'm very into VR at the moment, but there are plenty of other groups for that. I'd be interested in seeing presentations on game design, tips and tricks for optimizing and streamlining 3d assets and artwork, information on how to market an indie game with very limited resources.
