We've already gotten a great response from Michigan developers to fill out the weekend. This year, it'll be online only, streamed on Twitch for free over the course of 4 days. An event for developers and game enthusiasts for digital and analog games, we're prepping developer talks, a game trailer showcase, and live gameplay streams. Our new website just went live, and we'll continue to update the site with speaker and game listings over the next couple of weeks (what's listed now is about 1/4 of what's been submitted so far!). GLGX is still accepting talk and game submissions until February 7. Talk space is limited, but game space is not: projects of all shapes and sizes are welcome and encouraged to be submitted! And we hope to see everyone tune in to celebrate the fun being produced in your backyard! A Discord group is open for attendees to join TODAY through the website, to begin interacting with the organizers and speakers before and during the event. ==IGDA Resources== https://igda.org/resources/harassment/
